Welcome to Our Family!

My family just adopted new puppy, Shih Tzu breed and her name was Guci. Yup, Guci but not the world famous brand, Gucci! It is 6 months old now.

Wasn't she adorable?


I tied a pink ribbon on her but she doesn't like it.

Day With My Ji Mui

16th November 2008

My convocation ends last saturday and my mom went back last few days. I was suppose to go back hometown earlier since some of my friends are busy working and some got class. But I refuse and book my ticket on 17th November 2008. After my mom and my aunts back, I went back to Wangsa Maju to stay with Meow Ling for another few days. Most of the times I went to library to online because lazy to go shopping and want to online booking to Kuching and Miri since I haven't book yet.

Glad that Jenny, Purplefish and Meow Ling want to go out with me this weekend. Damn happy till speechless that time. This is the moment I was waiting for. It's been so long never went out with them after back from UK. Some more, this is my first time to go out with 3 of them. So sad Kai Wee is not here with us. Then it would be totally perfect picture. I went out with them before but not 3 of them together.

4 of us went to KLCC to watch Madagascar 2. Bought the ticket first before had our lunch. At first we find a seat at KLCC food court there..Suddenly purplefish suggest to eat at Sushi King. Well, since I also want to eat ramen althought I just ate at Sushi King twice with my hostel juniors and my sis. Unfortunately, no curry ramen for today. So sad.. So I had to order other dishes.
Still curry but with rice
Jenny's dish...

4 of us at Sushi King..
After that, movie time. Comment for this movie was not as funny compare the first movie. However, overall still can watch. I still miss the Madagascar first movie. The song makes me move..."I like to move it, move it"..
I'm really had a wonderful time with them. Although just window shopping around Isetan, Nose, Espirit, etc... Then we went back to Wangsa to have our dinner. Tonight is purplefish last night to stay at wangsa since she want to shift to KL Central to stay with her sis. Quite sad by the way because next time when I back to KL, no purplefish around Wangsa Maju. So must enjoy that moment with them. We had steamboat at new Hometown Steamboat which was located nearby BRJ. Chat for non-stop. I miss u all when I writing this blog..

Advanced Diploma Convocation

8th November 2008

Today is the most important not just for me, but my mom too. She had been waiting for this day for so long. She is the one who arrange all for me which makes me feel glad and blessful to have mom that keep supporting in everything I do especially in my study. Wake up at 5.30 am for early preparation coz the registration is from 7 am till 8 am. I scare if late, can't join the convo. We wait for taxi outside the hotel but need to wait for almost half hour coz too early. Not much taxi that time so me and my mom decide to go Sungei Wang there to take taxi. Believe it or not? The driver ask for RM20 from there to TAR College. WTH!! But my mom said OK..Coz she really scare I unable to reach there on time coz I still need to go hostel to take my gown. That's my mom. When reach hostel, I just realize something. The visit time is from 7.30 am and I reach there at 7 am. Somemore, my cousin was at hotel, not at hostel so no one can't help me take my formal shoes and gown. I damn nervous that moment. Luckily the hostel guard was very kind to let me enter or else I'm really in dead meat.

It's quite funny for us to wear gown with th red hood on it. While waiting to enter hall, it's so hot..
Before enter the hall..Everyone said "Cheessse.."
The gown was so thick. I really can't wait to enter the hall, take the certificate roll and get out of the hall. So lucky that Kai Wee sit just nearby or else I will be dead boring. Non stop chatting with Sharon, Kai Wee, and the people beside me and behind me. Hahahaha...Talk for almost 2 hours just realised is our turn to go to the stage. Really damn nervous. When times come, all I can do is SMILE!! Yes, SMILE!! So glad that I didn't pengsan or fell down on the stage.
This is the moment where all of us waiting for. FINISH!! The ceremony is over. We thought that it will end around 12 pm but it ends earlier at 10.30 am. Wah!! Really very fast. The moment that every student (i think so) wait for was taking unforgetable photos with family and friends.
My family: My aunt, cousin, 2nd aunt and my mom
AAC students
Glad that our diploma Business Law lecturer, Mr Julius come

Yeah, lots of photos but still not satisfied with it. Because I didn't manage to take some of the photo with my classmates, coursemates and even my AFA friends. This time I also didn't take photos in front of library, my favourite place. Haiz..So sad..

However, I'm glad that....
Adeline and Marina come from far far far away just to attend the convo. Adeline from Melaka and Marina from Kelantan. Thank so much!! Love u both!!
My hostel juniors..Thanks for the flowers!!

For this convo, I got 2 wishes. I know that second wish won't come true coz it is impossible but I really glad till like nobody worlds when all my ji mui come especially purplefish. I received sms from her the night before convo that she can't come coz need to send her mom to airport. I was damn sad till I not really had the mood that time. It was a really a great shock and suprise to see her there and u know what? I shout like a mad dog. But I really happy. Thanks so much for coming.

Scotland [Part 5]

20th August 2008Isle of Sky - Glascow

Back again to Scotland trip. Ok! Ok! This is the last post about Scotland trip. After that, my post will about Europe trip, Advanced Diploma convocation and lots more.

This is the 5th day of the Scotland Trip and we really start to dislike the programme being organised by the student coordinator especially the accomodation provided. Early morning, inside the coach, the student coordinator informed us that tonight we will separate into 2 hostel again. "What the ....", Not Again!!!! Why can't this people organised their things properly? I really just don't get it. Selection of hostel for that moment was in Glasgow and one more is back to the first hostel that stayed which was Loch Lomond Youth Hostel. Glasgow hostel was not enough for all of us and the student coordinator need to choose 15 people to stay in Loch Lomond Youth Hostel. Hey, who want to stay back at the same hostel whereas Glasgow is much better where we can have night view. So, some of us start to argue for our own right and at last, the solution was we need to share 1 bed with 2 people. This solution is much better than stay back to Loch Lomond.

I was really moody that day. Hard to explain but what to do, put a fake smile and pretend to be happy.

First place that we visited was Eileen Donan Castle. It is now one of the most photographed monuments in Scotland and a popular venue for weddings and film locations. It has appeared in lots of films such as one of the James Bond's movie; The World is Not Enough, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Made of Honor and even Bollywood movie, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. On a clear day it is possible to see the Isle of Skye from this castle. Weather on that day was very clear but we can't see Isle of Sky coz we need to pay for the entrance fee. As usual, if we heard the world "Pay" sure we don't want to have a look inside unless it is worthwhile. So, we just busybody outside the castle and wait for the time to fly.
Second place was Ben Nevis Distilerry but some of us not really interested with it. So we just walk around Fort William city.


At nitgh, walk around the Glasgow city and enjoy the night life. Glasgow was the second largest cities in Scotland with fantastic night life.

Glasgow - Moffat - Sheffield

Last day of Scotland trip. Whole day shopping around Glasgow. Before back to Sheffield, we stopby Moffat to buy Scotland infamous short bread biscuits. The famous brand were Walkers and Campbell. It was much more cheaper than the other places.

Scotland [Part 4]

19th August 2008Inverness - Isle of Skye

We depart from the horrible youth hostel that we stayed last nite. It's such a crippy feel to stay at there. And back to coach again to Isle of Skye. Today programme quite boring by the way compare to previous days maybe due to some of us too tired, not enough sleep especially me. Not much things to see as most all the places we visit were rock, mountain, waterfalls, etc.

Warning: Don't put much expectation on a place u visit.

Before we went Isle of Skye, we visit the Loch Ness Exhibition Centre. This place is famous for the legendary monster which called as Nessie (quite cute name). For those who had watched The Water House movie, it was adapted from this story.

After that, boring time! Welcome to Mountain, Rocks and Waterfalls...We start with Old Man of Storr.

Did u saw the stone on the right hand side? That's is Old Man of Storr...
This is one and only waterfall that knock my heart. Gosh, I'm feel like in heaven once again
Before we end our trip for today, we stopby another castle which was Duntulm Castle. Not much remains of Duntulm except a few scattered rubble foundations. I can't even knew that it was a castle before. This time we really mad and frustrated with the accomodation provided. Divided us into 2 different hostel...Ok but the problem was both hostel very far from each other which took 2 hours by coach. Really frustrated!! This is reminder to all the juniors who wish to join Scotland trip when study at SHU, don't join Scotland trip organised by student coordinator. I don't want to state his name here but I really wish next year will have different student coordinator for coming students. However, the hostel that we select was not bad at all. I don't know with the other hostel where my other friends stayed...

Scotland [Part 3]

Been away to KL for almost 2 weeks for my Advanced Diploma convocation. Should update my post bout the convo since everyone had post it but I seems so lazy to transfer all my photos to my laptop. Addition, my laptop hardisk is out of memory. Plan to buy new external hardisk but waiting for PC Fair that will be held soon in KK. Cant wait for that moment but my friend warned me that KK is totally different from KL PC Fair. I really want to see how much differences since I never went to PC Fair that held in my hometown.

Now back to my Scotland trip. I really far behind since all my friends who had been to UK had already post finish about their trip and I still posting about Scotland. Well, I don't want to lost the memory that I had in Scotland with my friends. And posting in my blog is like writing diary.

18th August 2008
John O' Groats

Past 2 days all the places we went was travelling by coach. This time, we had the opportunity to enjoy spectacular cruice. Yes, Cruise!!! Which means we were going out to the sea.
John O' Groats Ferry. Well, it's just a normal ferry. The wind is so strong. You can see from my hair :P
John o' Groats is a village in the Highland Council area of Scotland. It is popular with tourists because it is usually regarded as the most northerly settlement of mainland Great Britain. The actual location of the most northerly point, however, is at nearby Dunnet Head. The town takes its name from Jan de Groot, a Dutchman who obtained a grant for the ferry from the Scottish mainland to Orkney. [OK, well I copy this from Wikipedia. I like this website coz is like reference

Scotland [Part 2]

17th August 2008
Fort William - Inverness

Depart from Loch Lomond at 8.30 am to visit Nevis Range which offer unique mountain experience. We took gondolas which is the cable cars to altittude if 2150ft up Absorb Mor besides Ben Nevis.
Gondolas which took us to Nevis Range. Almost similar cable car to Genting Highland
View from Nevis Range. Feels like in heaven

After that, we depart to Glenfinnan. This is one of the destionation that I had been waiting for. This is because some scenes from Harry Potter films were shot here. I thought we gonna miss to see the trains pass by as we reach there around 3 pm and the train gonna passby at 3.15 pm. Luckily we manages to reach on time. I'd been searching all the places or building that Harry Potter were shot on but I only able to find 2. This is one of it.



On the way to Inverness, we stopby Urguhart Castle. There's nothing much left of this castle. Though extensively ruined, it was in its day one of the largest strongholds of medieval Scotland, and remains an impressive structure. We unable to enter since it's closed, so just took group photo of it.
We reach Inverness at evening. The night view at Inverness was totally awesome and spectacular.

Scotland [Part 1]

16th August 2008
Sheffield - Newcastle - Edinburgh - Loch Lomond

We depart from Charlotte Court at 12.30 am. While waiting for our couch, I just realized I forget to take the most important thing with me. So I had to run back again back to my flat to take it. On my way back to my flat, I was stopped by the hostel guard. He keep telling me go back to where we were stand juz now for our couch. I was like what happened. Then I just knew that our couch has arrived at last, Oh gosh! I had to run as fast as I can. Run like an ox. What had I forgotten by the way? Samsung MP3..Hehehe..Well, should understand that most of our time was spend inside the couch. I really need MP3 by my side.


Our first stop is Newcastle. We stopped by Newcastle Millenium Bridge at 3 am like that. My long time friend, YH Thong was studied there. Sad that till now we never met each other.
Newcastle Millenium Bridge behind me
At last, we reach Scotland around 7 am plus plus. It's hard for me to explain all the places I been to coz I not really know what were they behind. I think pictures speaks more than thousand words, rite??
