I moved out of my hostel!

Yes! You got my title right! I have officially moved into a new place after 3 years living in my university's hostel. This is a big move for myself because I get to have a whole new experience of living away from home. Staying in hostel is definitely more convenient for students because everything is provided such as food, accommodation, laundry, cleaning services, internet, and etc. I wrote a post regarding AIMST hostel previously.

However, I have been staying there for the past 3 years and I have decided to move out. To experience something new. I already know what it's like to live in-campus, so this time I get to feel what is it like to live out-campus. Previously I was sharing a room with 3 other roommates and 8 other housemates. The room is definitely big because it accommodates 4 people per room. Each person have their own corner with their study table, closet, and bed. As for bathroom, it is shared. There is even a pantry for us to have some light food when we are in a rush. Also a living room for us to chill.

Everything sounds pretty good enough right. Yes it does. I did experience what is it like to be a hosteller, so now it is time to give a shot to feel how is it like to be a non-hosteller. I was having this rush of adrenaline just by thinking how my new room was going to look like, how I should arrange my room and pasting my art works and having my own space. Living in a room with 3 other people doesn't really give you the much privacy. Having said that, the best part of living in hostel are my roommates which is hands down the best hosteller experience and I didn't regret any of it and they are definitely great friends to me :) Often we would cook in the hostel (which we are not supposed to), goof around the room and chat and perhaps singing together in the bathroom haha.

Now, I am living in my own room (plus air-conditioner hehe. If you want to have air-conditioner at campus hostel, it is very costly) with a larger study table. A cabinet large enough to put all my things. A wooden bed frame! I have always wanted a nice single bed frame. Everything is in place. I have a great landlord, which is also my good friend haha and of course the bf who has just added a new status: my housemate :) And not to forget another two new housemates! So now we are 5 people living under one roof. Oh did I mention now I have a whole kitchen to use instead of a pantry?  Oh yay! Here's to more cooking! Perks of living off-campus is having to find my own food which I could either cook or eat out. Previously food is already provided in our campus cafeteria but it doesn't have much varieties.

Today will be my first night staying in my new room! As time progress I will add more elements into the room, but for now everything is good :) After all today is Day One only ma!

My whole move was majorly help by my parents who shift all my stuff (alot of stuff) from my hostel to my new place. I didn't know I had that much of stuff. I know I have a lot but I too was shock by the how much it was haha. Dad told me that previously he helped mom to move house now he is helping his daughter to move house too. Aww.... That's pretty amazing. Mom definitely did help me organise a lot of my stuff where as dad helped me fix my bed frame which he insisted. So thankful la T.T

Here are some photos to share

Biding farewell to my hostel.

May 2017

Hello guys! So here is my 'kinda' proper post update! I am just 2 weeks away from my finals for Year 2. How time really flies (I always say this sentence do I?). My blogging mojo came today and I figured I should take this time to blog and update about my life. I have come to a conclusion where I just want this place to be a place where I first fell a love with which is documenting my life here and having chance to read back again in upcoming years and reminisce about it and of course if I am able to share great experiences and information, I would do it in my blog :)

Begin with: 17th May

17th May

This is my intro photo. Haha. Yknw how there is the cover photo for each new blog post, and usually I will put a photo which I want people to look first. Yeah, so here is a photo of me tying up a bun to class! Although it is not that much of a bun, more like a very messy partial bun, I like how my hair look so soft here with my faded colours and strands of hair falling off my shoulder.

17th May
Same day I went our for lunch with Clement in Semeling. A local economic rice shop which is a favourite for students in Aimst due to its location and price. It is called Pesta Seafood Restaurant. A very humble small stall situated in Semeling.

A day before: 16th May

I took part in my first interfaculty sport event. I was representing the Faculty of Pharmacy in 1500m track event. Heck I was nervous. I won the first place during my previous Pharmsalympics in September 2016 which qualifies myself to represent my faculty to the interfaculty event. I was up against 4 other faculties namely Nursing, Business, Dentistry and Biotech. Runners were required to be there by 4.55pm, and so we all did. 1500m female track event was around the 7th or 8th event. I was pumped up at first, nervous and excited but it was all neutral by the time my event start at 8pm. We waited very long due to much delays that occurred. Even my body cooled down by the time I begin to run. Long story cut short, I got 3rd placing. 4th place stopped running, 5th place fainted. lol. My ex-roommate (left) ran with me in this event too! She ran so well and I am so proud of her! And also too Jia Gee who won first! I am inspired by both of them, their running spirit motivates myself to keep running long distances. It was indeed a great experience joining this year's Interfaculty Event. And also big big big thanks to all my friends for all the support for screaming my name, who waited so long for my event to come. At parts I think my leg couldn't withstand any longer but I didn't want to let them down nor to let myself down. To the guy who ran with me through the whole 1500m T.T I thank you too. Can I cry die liao. 

A day after: 18th May

 Throughout the whole time I was training for my 1500m event, I took care of my diet and also constantly pushing myself to run everyday. However, due to my knee, I couldn't run everyday like I wanted to. Anyways the point is, I took care of my diet. So right after my event, the next day Clement brought me to McDonald's to satisfy my long buried cravings. Oh yeah! And also, this was a day to remember!!! Do you see my happy face hugging a blue koala bear there? It was won from a claw machine!!! Miracles are real. We were casually walking to the cinemas but was found closed, which leads us to a row of clawing machines. We thought to just try our luck. I wanted this blue koala, so we aimed for it. There was a malay guy playing there too, he even exchanged a RM5 note with Clement to play more rounds. We got this koala by our 6th or 5th try! AH!!!!! Our excitement level hit roof top when we saw it passed the border, down under it rolls, into my arms. We screamed. Okay la perhaps I screamed hahahaha. Ever since that day, I aim to play more claw machines. Lol fml.

5th May: PROM 2017

Months of planning for this one night. Great job well done to everyone!

6th May

First time attending a Sikh wedding! Thank you for the invite Khavitha! With the girls that night.

19th May: The Famous Curry Mee in Eupe

Both Clement & I and also Ying Hui & Kang went for the famous curry mee in Eupe food court Sungai Petani! We went there around 10am and started queing up. We were lucky enough to had a taste of it like finally. We went there several times but it was sold up so fast. So here is a sakai face of us while we were quieng up hahahaha.

22nd May: Mom's Birthday

It is mom's birthday! I was in Sungai Petani and couldn't be home to celebrate it so as our usual tradition, we will video call to celebrate together. "Ready? 1 2 3. *sings happy birthday song*". It makes me felt as thou I was back at home celebrating together. Such a nice blessed birthday mom had this year. Received flowers from dad, birthday cake and also 3 birthday cards in total from Esther, Apple and myself. She love the flowers very much. Suddenly dad's long kept romantic-ness resurfaced. Always so happy to see mom being who she are best :)

23th May: Hospital Visit

Kang was admitted to the hospital and we all went to visit him. This is such a cute photo of Ying Hui by the way. Hospital food not enough for him to eat, extra tapao food for him. Definition of happiness in this photo.

Seriously so many birthdays were celebrated in May! Wow! First it was mom's, then Yvonne's, Xiew May next, then Gerald and also Yue Ying's! and also Khavitha on the same day.

Hello peng you

Peng you means friends. 朋友. So hello peng you!

It know it has been a superbly long time since I write on this space. I have been always thinking of what to post in my blog. I was thinking of something meaningful to post, something that is beneficial to anyone's who is reading here but most of the time I blog mostly on my personal happenings.

So the more I think about what to post.....I ended up not posting anything instead fml. So I thought again, let's just not think and let my fingers type as it wish.

But see here, I have been blogging for many years now. More frequent previously compared to current. Ever since I entered uni, I have been blogging less. I love writing, jotting down daily events that occur because I love the idea how I can look back at my old blog post and reminisce the moments that I had. I could use Dayre. But my handphone got no storage fml again. But it still mostly due to fact that I like Blogger's platform more. I like to feel my fingers pressing the keyboard (okay sorry sounds exaggerating).

However, when I grew up, and as I mature, I don't blog as frequent as I did in high school. Because I became more cautious of what I post online. Especially when my blog is open to public, anyone is able to read it. Thus, I have been more careful to not simply blab about anything. Sometimes it could reveal too much to the internet world. If you have noticed, a wave of randsomvirus surfaced in a lot of medias recently. It is a virus which locks the information in your computer until you pay a total amount of money. But based on the news, no one has submitted to the payment.

This is just such a random post on my thoughts on blogging. I shall put up a proper post next haha. Okay zai jian. Zai jian means bye!

Learn to ask for help

Hello and hi,

its funny how, few minutes ago I thought my title today was going to be "Be Independent". Given a circumstance where I am staying 373km away from home, there are a lot of things you have to do yourself. Previously I blogged about how I had food poisoning in my university campus due to the cafeteria food that I consumed. Thankfully I had great housemates and room mates that time. That was during my foundation years.

There are many situations where I have to do things on my own now. It is always good to have help from people, but if given a choice I would rather choose to do something myself. Because I don't like to bother other people. Everyone have their own things to do. And you yourself is responsible for yourself. People can help you but they aren't obliged too, and most of the time you can't depend on other people to help you, after all, it is your own matters, not theirs.

Thus, I don't really want to ask people for help unless I really had no choice and when I am out of wits. Like let's say a printer problem that I faced.

 I am currently using HP Deskjet 2515. My printer ran out of ink. Both the colour and black ink. So I refilled the black ink, but I don't have the colour ink. The problem I faced is my printing is streaked. I searched online on how to handle this problem. My room mates gave me some solutions. But neither worked. I was at wits end. And I know my period was coming, so I could sense the easily-get-irritated feeling already ( okay here makes no sense). But I hanged on and not burst. Because, after all I was telling myself, this was a very small problem and it was my own problem and I shouldn't have disturb anybody's time and I should learn to settle this thing. I thought to myself if I really couldn't settle this, I might post it to facebook or group chats to ask anybody knows how to solve this. But then I didn't.

Lastly I told klm, and I think he had a very logic solution to my printer problem. And I didn't want to sound so whiny nor naggy when I told him about this issue. And so, I think my printer solution is solved. I had to get the colour catridge too to see if the streaked printing will be solved.

Point here is, I am very much appreciative of him. And sometimes, hey, maybe the feeling to depend on someone once a while feels nice.. Thank you.

So talking about...


So I thought, hmm, today wasn't a very productive day, I should publish a blog post to make myself feel abit productive haha. Today was definitely one of those days where you don't want to do anything at all, just stay at home, put on a korean drama, slack and just laze away.

I will also put my Bangkok post on hold and just blog on random stuff. It's funny thou, coz all this while if I think of publishing a blog post, I will have so many thoughts planned out to blog. I would've think of what topic to post and also how to put my words together. But when I sit infront of my laptop preparing to type my blog post, I forget everything that I wanted to post.

So here are some random thoughts,

the other day I was talking to my friend, on new year resolutions. I think it was probably my 19th birthday (I guess), I thought of maturing. To be more rational thinking, more mature, to make decisions, don't be indecisive. I had a problem of deciding stuff sometimes. This is call dilemma. Indecisive. Still happens to me sometimes.

So about maturing, I learn that you actually mature through experiences or when you are being put into a certain situation where you by hook or by crook have to do it yourself. Up until now however, I still think I am in someway, still not mature. But I was told that it is alright. It is alright to not know everything. You can't expect yourself to know everything by the age of 21. You are still in the age of learning and discovering. So just go with the flow and learn from every step you make.

So talking about turning 21,
I registered as a Malaysia voter! Have you? I am excited to vote. So here is some info I got:

  1. You only can register when you pass your 21st birthday.
  2. You can register at Pos Malaysia.
  3. You just need your IC to register as a voter.
  4. It takes 3 months to process.
Thus, I am not sure if I can vote for this upcoming general election (GE) since it takes 3 months to process my registration. I don't know if I am registered on time. So let's see then! To those who have passed their birthdays, you guys should go and register now and be a responsible Malaysian!

So talking about the korean drama I am watching,
it is called Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. It is quite a different drama concept. It's about a young lady who is a weightlifter. So she is in a sport's school. When I am watching this drama, I tend to notice very good values from it. There are some very good quotes too.

"Learn to stand on your own two feet"
Becoz Joon Hyung(the male starring) told his ex-girlfriend, Si Ho to be independent and learn to stand on her own two feet.

"Be as strong as steel"
Because in life, you got to be strong to face any challenges.

So talking about a book I recently read,
it was written by Ellen Degeneres. I had a nice time reading her book. One of words that I remember was "Be unique". Sometimes we tend to follow the norm, to not be different from other people, so others won't give us weird look. But actually, everyone is different. Everyone is unique in their own way. So don't care how others look and you and just be who you are.
Hmm I think that's why klm always told me to be myself haha.

So talking about friends,
I think it is very very, very important to find friends whom you can share deep conversations together. Where you can tell them anything openly. And I believe I have those friends :) For that I am very very grateful for their existence. We all meet different people in life for different reasons.

So talking about women,
girls have pms. What is pms? Pre-menstrual syndrome. And we tend to be quite different in this period of time. We tend to lose our patience easily, get irritated easily, frustrated. I still don't know why this could happen lol. Nevertheless, I am trying to get a control on this pre-menstrual syndrome. I am still very curious about pms at how it can influence our mood. Well, I guess it's the change in hormone levels. Girls are also need to take notice of health check-ups such as pap smear. I came to know this through a video I was watching.

So talking about valentine,
Today is February 14th. I read back on my previous blog posts about Valentine's Day. Haha pretty childish omg. Nothing much happen this year's Valentine. It's funny how I take notice of Valentine's Day more last time compared to this year. I think it is mostly about spending great quality time with your love ones like your family, friends or lover. It doesn't have to be only on Valentine's Day. I still don't understand the point of it la actually lol. I would love birthdays, Chinese New Year and Christmas more because it's a day that have a meaning to it. Valentine's Day also have it's meaning la, but I don't know about it, so I don't care la lol paiseh.

So that's it. Haha. Done with all random thoughts. It is very random, but I just felt like typing out a post.
