Well, it has been quite a long time since I last blogged. That's cos I've had so much to do and so much to prepare for. Now, I am exactly 30 days away from leaving Malaysia to the frigid tundras of Tasmania, Australia.

It's been a hectic 2008 but everything is pretty much all systems go and quite frankly, I am excited yet scared to go to a foreign land for the first time for such a long period. Yes, yes, I've heard how kampung and ulu Tasmania is but I really don't mind as I have spent 26 years of my life at a hectic pace here in PJ.

I will be leaving on the 2nd of July 2008 and will only probably be back on the 30th of September 2009. Nope, I highly doubt that I will be coming back for Christmas or Chinese New Year as I have a lot planned out for my stay there. I will definitely miss my friends and not to mention, the FOOD! But hey, one's gotta do what one's gotta do, eh?

If I don't see any of you before I leave, I wish you guys all the best and thanks for the many good times we've had :)

I'm taking a sabbatical from blogging for a bit.

Have lots to sort out at the moment and plus, a revamp to a b e - s t e r i a is currently under consideration. 

Hopefully I'll get it all sorted soon.

Brief Update

I know I have not been blogging consistently but I've been kinda caught up with some stuff. Lets see, to briefly update, here's wha's been happening.

Firstly, I found out that I've graduated with a Diploma in Law from KDU. Yes, that would also mean that I have passed all my papers and now, transferring credits over to the University of Tasmania. And yes, that also means I got accepted into the uni. So, YAY! So now I have a diploma so that makes me a diplomat! They even have a convocation ceremony and stuff end of August. Mom's all ecstatic.

Next, my workout has finally paid off when I met up with some of my classmates whom I've not seen in months since my term ended and they noticed how big I've gotten! Double yay! My vigorous routine certainly did a good job. I feel so good about myself :)

My term for UTAS with KDU starts on the 27th August and that means I have about a month odd to kill. Damn. Anyone wanna play squash or badminton? :D

No, She's Not My Daughter

Something interesting happened today at lunch.

I was out with mom and my neighbour's kid, Gabby (short for Gabrielle) and mom wanted to check out a few furniture shops for a chest of drawers. For a kid who's almost 3 years old, she's one very intelligent kid with a wide range of vocabulary for that age. You cannot lie to her because she will call your bluff and argue with you. Yes, argue.

One time, my dad told her that she was being unreasonable and she asked him what "unreasonable" meant and started debating and trying to have her way. Smart kid. She also figured out my mom's name on her own. She used to call my mom "aunty". But after hearing her grandmom calling my mom by name, she picked it up and by associating the name to the person, she started calling my mom "aunty Margaret". All of us were quite shocked.

Today I learnt that she knew the words to that old song, "When I Was Young". All of it. That was the first surprise. The second was when I had Mika's album playing in the car and she was singing to his songs. Turns out, her dad has the same album in his car and she was happily singing away to "Grace Kelly", "Lollipop" and "My Interpretation". Sure, she didn't exactly pronounce the words coherently but for a kid that age to recognise the songs AND the title, it's quite amazing.

So after visiting the furniture shop, we decided to have lunch at Hup Soon. We ordered our food and Lil Gabby was amusing herself by singing and telling us LOTS of stories like who Harry Potter's wife was and what happened to her and stuff. Of course, this is not unaccompanied by shrieks of laughter cos she finds herself so amusing. She's absolutely adorable.

My Yong Tau Foo order finally came and with a shocked expression, the guys asked me, "Your daughter ah?!". I almost choked and explained to him that Gabby is my neighbour's kid and we were just taking her out on a ride. After looking at the scenario closely, it DID look like Gabby was my daughter and my mom was her grandmother. Haha it was hilarious. Of course, inquisitive Gabby kept asking me what the guy asked and how come she's not my daughter -.-"

As cute and adorable as she is, she can be a HANDFUL. Really. She's quite loud and rough. Very un-girly. She would bump her head and laugh (aka shriek) out loud because it is most amusing for her. 

And here's a picture of the rascal:

She's damn cute but don't let it fool you cos you're in for a world of surprises! :D

I'm Really Sick

Great. After popping many Panadols, my fever and flu are still not gone. And I have a freaking paper tomorrow morning at 10am. How on earth am I going to pull thru this one?

Been trying to study for the life of me but it's difficult when you're giddy and trying to remember cases. This really sucks. And there's no way I can postpone the exam. Plus, I'd rather get this over and done with.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargghhhh! Poo...

After a few hours of tweaking and editting here and there, my blog seems to be what it was before the codes got messed up. I even got my galleries and links to other blogs up again.

Took me awhile but managed to fix as much as I could. If your link was previously in my abe-sterians list and it isn't now, let me know and I'll add you. 

Also, my phone's screwing up much and I'm planning to get a new phone and this time, it will be a Sony Ericsson walkman edition. Stupid Nokias are screwing way too often. If all goes well ($$-wise), I should get my new phone by the end of the week. So if you don't get a reply from  me, chances are my phone ate your message / missed call.

Now back to trying to study thru the massive headache and spinning my head has been going through the past few days.
