Ugh. Time is passing so so fast. I’m at home in Kuching with my family and soon I have to go back to KL for college. I really liked this holiday except for the fact that i think my parents are spoiling me wayyy too much especially since it’s almost my last holiday before I leave for the States. I booked my flight ticket but I’m worried about my visa which the form still hasnt arrived yet. I just ordered new glasses and I’m meeting my a level friends on thursday after their exam. It’s been so long since I’ve seen them and it’s weird because I’m only seeing them for the first time 10+ days after I come to kuching? I dont know, feels weird. I just taught my sis some maths before her re-test because she failed her actual exam. I read some stuff about biology before my next semester starts and also I’m planning on sticking with Speech for next semester. I hate making the video part and all the other effort I have to put in making my speeches but I need 3 more credits??? Also, I’m going to work at Boost when the semester starts. I hope this all goes well lol. It’s my last semester so betta make the best out of it. + I’m gonna make a list of what I’ll need in the States when I transfer so that’ll be my next post.
Anyways, I don’t get the point. Like ugh. What’s all this. So much time passing and I feel like I’m barely enjoying anything. I want to be with my family until I get really sick of them again but do that without getting so spoiled because I feel so bad that my parents are spending sooo much that I’m here. When I’m in the States, they’re going to have to spend more on me anyway. Gah i dont know. Everything hurts and is annoying and I’m getting fat.
Hiiiii it’s been over a year since I’ve written on this blog. This feels so refreshing; writing after so long and rereading my old posts. I almost cant believe how easily I came back to my blog after all this while. A quick update + my perspectives on certain issues I’m into is on the wayyy.
So, I’m in my fourth semester in ADP right now and I’m taking Cross-cultural Communication, French for Culture and Communication 1, General Psychology and Statistics for Business. I’m a vice president for Gravitas, the student union for the ADP community, and I’m an active member in the TUSO fam as a violinist! An upcoming concert: Triplet Concert is on May 6th where we’re collaborating with Sunway Uni and Monash Uni + some SPO people. Got vip tickets for ma famille yays.
I really do feel like I’ve gotten a stronger grip around my life compared to the last year, 2016. It took a while for me to realize how my life was going in a haywire crazy all-over-the-place direction with my physical health, mental health + emotional crashes, sleep, time management, stress stress stress, homesickness, friendship. In fact, I actually sought professional help at a hospital and fortunately, my parents ended up supporting me after some time of adjusting and we’ve grown closer imo 🙂
Its the first day of CNY here! Happy Lunar New Year to all the peeps celebrating. This was my first time being without my family for cny but also it was my first time being away from Sarawak and all the fireworks, good Chinese food, interaction with everyone and i cannot forget: ang paos.
I went to climb Broga Hill with 2 friends at 4am. It all started the day before (Sunday) when my friend picked me up at 2pm to go KLCC. From there, we walked around and had some fun around that area as well as going to Pavilion, Sungei Wang and Fahrenheit. We then headed to an area near Shah Alam for fun at night, just to kill time. We ate and walked around the night market then headed to the petrol station where we changed and slept in the car for an hour or so. 3am and we were off to the hill.
The first leg of the hike was sooo difficult and arduous; i panted and heaved, like my heart had a problem. i never felt that weak and tired before. But i pushed harder and kept going. Woo that was definitely a new experience for me. Anyway, the second and third parts were not as hard as the first part, phew. We stayed at the 3rd point- we didnt go to the top… well because i just didnt want to. We waited and waited for hours for the sun. It wAS so cold.
IT WAS AMAZING. WOW. the view was spectacular and breathtaking. The view was sweet and i could feel the pain and tiredness from just before fading away to a distant memory lost somewhere in the back of my mind. It was so worth it. I dont know whether i would like to go back and go through the tough hike again… but i enjoyed this trip nonetheless.
We ate brekkie at Cheras area; i ate Roti Canai and my friends ate Nasi Lemak. We then headed to one of my friends’ house to chill and charge our phones and brains as we desperately needed rest. I slept so ‘tiredly’ as my head and body ached a little. I was so dead tired and my phone was 7% batt so we both charged up during the short stay at her house. We then ate lunch before heading out again to Midvalley this time!
I know… pretty crazy…
We parked at a convenient parking lot and then sat on the KTM which took us to Midvalley. I ate snacks and drank green tea latte as we walked around, exploring and window-shopping. We spent most of our time at Muji (GAH i love Muji). I bought contact lens solution from Watsons and then we were on our way back.
It was around 7pm when i arrived at my place. I said goodbye as they left. What a memorable trip. I spent around 30 hours together with them. What a way to spend cny day 1!
im dead tired. i need sleep. my body hurts. but i wouldnt have wanted to spend that time doing anything else.
here it is again, another year, another set of resolutions…
- experience! say yes! try new things even if you’re not really comfortable with it because who knows, great things are bound to happen more when you step out of your comfort zone.
- lets read more! im trying to read at least 1 book a month. i might read 3 books on March then not read anything until November, which is something i want to start avoiding by 2016…i want consistency!
- a cleaner diet!! please!! i’ve been binging since forever, been sleeping at 2am everyday and barely workout anymore! 😥 I needa start eating healthy but delicious food! i know i can find some good healthy food if i look hard enough for it. and this isnt a resolution so its not going to be the next point.. but rather a goal. I want to workout A LOT more and try to mix cardio and strength training.
Someone i kinda adore said this on a vid about how she got into better shape: take food more seriously, get a trainer, workout A LOT and eat healthy food most of the time.
A week from now, i will be moving away from my city to start uni/college. Wooohhh its so so close. I am nervous esp with things like doing the laundry, cleaning and washing dishes EVERY SINGLE DAY OF MY LIFE omg ugh… but what i am excited about right now is the packing! i love packing and cleaning out things although it does make my eyes itch and make me sneeze like a hundred times!!
I will be making a post about my new year resolutions for 2016 soon! it feels like its getting shorter every year HAHAH 🙂
so for now, ciao! x

On the 20th to the 22nd, my family went to Damai for some family time and such.. It was such a memorable trip. I’ve come to love trips involving the beach. To me, the beach was like a safe haven to relax, have fun, make memories and let go of the pain and trouble. I was ecstatic when i heard the news of a 3 day trip!!!!
We ate breakfast altogether in the morning and later on moved all our bags into the car and set off. It was an hour ride from the city to the beach. There were quite a lot of bags especially since my parents were planning to go golfing on one of the days at the Golf Club.
This trip made me spend the longest time with my sister. We were inseparable during the trip, sometimes it was because we wanted to, but mostly it was because there was no choice. We sat next to each other, we walked alongside each other, we slept together in the same bed in the same room, etc. Im glad huge fights did not break out between us… which would have if we had to spend that much time together when we were younger. We are a lot more mature now, that goes for the relationship we have as well.
I am very grateful to my dad who arranged this trip and brought us to eat delicious food at restaurants. AH i still can taste the food in my mouth; my mouth is watering. The food was absolutely scrumptious! Besides loving the food, i believe this trip has really been what i wanted it to be. Alone time for our family. My parents nor my sister may not think the same but at least i do. This may be our last trip together as a family before i leave, but i doubt so. Anyways, it was a hella fun trip for the end of the year. What a nice end to 2015.
Its been quite a long time since i’ve written a post. Hello, again.
Many things have happened since my last post: I finished school and took my igcse exams on the-end-of-oct ~ november. I have gotten a lot closer to my sister and possibly further from my friends… or maybe its just a phase. i dont know honestly. (will have another post regarding that another time). I have applied for university/college and have gotten my acceptance letter with a scholarship. I have found a room to stay in for the next year at least, and will be moving out in a month. I know next year is going to be a hell of a time; moving to another city alone with no friends, living away from my parents for the first time, starting uni, paying for things myself, etc.. it all sounds so different from the comfortable lifestyle i have gotten myself into the past years. It will all come to an end. With an end to something, it is always the beginning of something new. I am equally afraid yet excited.
