So nice!!!

OMFG - jaw-dropping results

These are the several favourite contestants of mine. I am so proud of them. Having been overweight myself allows me to draw onto their experience and feel what they feel. I am very proud of them. Losing weight isn't just about losing fat and looking good - it's about CHANGING YOUR LIFE TO A BETTER ONE and LOVING YOURSELF.

Kristie said that she would want her children to learn by example. I really thank my parents on that. In the past few months, I have begun to realise if I listened to them more, I would be alright in life. Really, for instance, my parents, I think far more than any other parents, literally force the idea of healthy living into our young brains since I can remember! I am so thankful I have you guys to be my northern star (even though I dismiss whatever you say at times, I usually do take your advice on board and change accordingly).

The 2006 McDonald The Dogs

Ebay is already selling them!! Gosh - I thought they have not been released completely? Damn...

Oh my doggies!!!

Now they are on my bed. Ain't that sweet? These are the 2005 THE-DOGs. Am collecting the 2006 bookmark-the-dogs. Thanks to Eelin, msg from Malaysia asking me to help her buy. Unfortunately I am afraid I might not be able to collect all of them. Ebay? Must be paying via the nose.

More on BB<36

Dave has come out to the nation - and that's the last time he had to do it as now we all know! Dunno if that's one of BB's twist to work the ratings? But who cares? It's TV biz and there can b only so much truth on it. And Camilla has been a great fag hag to Dave. Good on ya girl.

I haven't watched much BB myself since the launch night. I still love the final 3 of last year's HMs Greg, Tim and Vesna. She was a bitch but she brought great drama to the series!!

Just when I tot BB06 sucked...

Hmmm I just came up with another interpretation of the BB06 representation. The '0' in BB06 is a love sign - got it yet? BB 'love' si(ck)?

And the rainbow thing - people had speculated that the world first would be the world first wholly homo BB housemate, which turned out to be untrue on the launch night. With the as old as time tales like world's first mother-daughther relationship (which deemed to be untrue coz there had been a father-son relationship in the Italian BB, unless you argue on the sex), fines, FNL and reward room, I tot I had lost interest in BB<36.>

All the bimbos and himbos in the house just irritates me. A particular male blonde with small wotever was totally brainless. He addressed BB as the older male sibling just 1 sec after he was specifically asked not to; he cursed just 1 sec after he was told; and these 2 events took place in no longer than 10 secs apart. How dumb can this blonde be? Even Christy (last year's big-boobed-blonde) was smarter, well, by not much. Each of the fine costs them $5,000.

From one of the forums on the BB website, this is bound to be another twist BB has under his sleeve if true. I am back on the BB train once again to see how things turn out.

Exactly my point


Have been wanting to say something like this after reading that Tony Leung was going to be a cop again, in his next up-coming movie. And all HK movies are nothing but about mafia and cops. that all the HK script writers think about? And is that all the movie-goers wanna see? Infernal Affairs came in 3 instalments. Shocking really. I couldn't be bothered to find out which was the one I had watched. Even comedies revolve around mafia.

the western MAMAs v the EASTERN mamaS

Just a quickie before I go to uni today, in response to our newly borns, Suri Holmes-Cruise.

Do y'all know that there have been 3 famous pregnant ladies (from showbiz o'course) in each side of the globe? Enter eastern mamas: 吴君如、陶晶莹 & 王菲 and western mamas: Gywneth Paltrow, Katie Holmes andAngelina Jolie. So far the score has been 1:2.

We have our Moses and Suri from the west. 吴君如 has also given an early birth to a still-unnamed baby girl. So the final battle is that if 陶晶莹 and 王菲 can pull it off (read: push it out) before the still-flying-helicopter-and-giving-birth-in-Africa Angelina Jolie. =]

And the names: Moses and Suri? Not so good... Apple was good, damn original! Moses keeps remind me of MOLES; Suri - surirumah tangga (housewife in Malay).

This entry turned out to be less funny and sarcastic that I thought it would be, so out I am!

What out ranks a Princess?

A British Airway's passenger cabin was being served by an obviously gay flight attendant, who seemed to put everyone into a good mood as he served them food and drinks.

As the plane prepared to descend, he came swishing down the aisle and announced to the passengers: "Captain Marvey has asked me to announce that he'll be landing the big scary plane shortly, lovely people, so if you could just put up your trays, that would be super."

On his trip back up the aisle, he noticed that a well-dressed rather exotic looking woman hadn't moved a muscle."Perhaps you didn't hear me over those big brute engines." he said, "I asked you to raise your trazy-poo so the main man can pitty-pat us on the ground."

She calmly turned her head and said, "In my country, I am called a Princess. I take orders from no one."

To which the flight attendant replied, without missing a beat, "Well sweet-cheeks, in my country I'm called a Queen, so I out rank you. Tray-up bitch."

{Thank you Angelene for the article}

Not a another one?

Awwwww, I had another dream this morning. The subject was me/i/myself this time around. I think I was losing teeth while brushing my teeth. I even started with less teeth than what I am having now. My gums were so screwed up and they were thin and corroded?

As I was cleaning the teeth, two of my molar teeth fell "cling-clang" into the sink. CLING-CLANG. Following that a few incisors went along the invisiblie air-slide. Funny enough there wasn't any blood.

Why have I kept having weird dreams and remembered them?

Monday, April 17, 2006


I woke up ghastly this morning. I had just had a dream in which my high school best friend died. However I can't recall the cause of death. I remember that it was a devastating environment. What kind of dream was that? I was scared. I hope it doesn't mean anything. I emailed him and told him about it. I hope the dream isn't an omen.

Did I just become superstitious?

For those who went to Cheryl's place on Easter Sat

It was a brilliant night - normally I would be a person who is quite particular about my sleeping hour. I totally forgot about time and it was near 5am when we decided to call it a night.

I will cook for you guys next time ok! Jealous coz everyone just went "Sherly your meatloaves are fantastic!" =] Joking...You know I loved it too.

More easter eggs can be found at these blogs: Winnie, Sherly (pictorially) and Cheryl.

Forever Young (click for full lyric)

So many adventures couldn’t happen today

So many songs we forgot to play

So many dreams are swinging out of the blue

We let them come true

Forever young, I want to be forever young

Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever

HATE is such a strong word

but I can't find another word to describe my current feelings atm. Two group members for an assignment are driving me crazy! They don't do work and they don't communicate (with each other and with me). They come to a meeting having not read even the most basic materials.

If you wanna go down, please help yourself but dun drag me along.

Whoever is behind the DNA - reveal yourself

alf is a cautious creator.

I guess the name of a cautious creator says it all. I am a gemini. I guess both sense and sensibility of mine are in a balanced mix. But is that harder? I have 2 sides. Now I think about it - I sometimes do struggle from split (not personality) minds. Or does everybody? I find myself doing things that might be of double standards? I like peace when it's chaotic and I like chaos when it's peaceful.

I try to be creative in ways of living life. At the same time I try to find some predictability and familiarity in life. Recent observation - I couldn't get myself to follow the weekly schedule and hence suffered from feeling like a loser. Being a 乖仔 for so long, my bad-boi side is rambling and toying with my mind.

All and all, it's good to let the test reveal a part of me that I didn't already know about myself. Just put it in the way that - I have still got some left in the tank to be figured out.

beauty in the eye of beholder

Swee San and I were in the same train to Uni yesterday. We had the window seats with 2 more seats next to each of us. Before the train left for Pakenham, a chinese lady and a chinese guy came in and sat to the next to us, with an empty seat between each of San and I (Hopefully I haven't confused you with the seating plan).

And the feast began. She proudly took out a pie, wrapped in a paper bag. She tore open the bag and placed it on the seat in between us. Happily she just chew it away with a fork. The smell just made me frown! It's very uncomfortable having people to eat in a confined space. Especially food with strong smell. Even the fruit smelled. The rockmelon especially. I hope the seat wasn't soaking wet because of the pie. Worse, if people around her smelled of pie!!!

Lucky me and the Chinese guy, who had been seeting opposite her, pretending to be asleep - our stop had arrived at Caufield and off we went. Poor Swee San. She later told me that after we left, she unshamefully undid her shoes and put her legs on the seats. Walao! Feeling homely wasn't she? I'd faint on the spot. That is a gesture I'd expect to see in China. I hope people realise that while you try to practice your culture while in a foreign land, sometimes we have to do as the French while in France. Particularly putting legs on seats. (Guilt-struck ªƒ: Dad used to forbid me to even do that at home. Now I know that he was putting money into my pocket.)

That was not the end, yet. Swee San was in the same train and same coach with the-pie-eating-and-feeling-homely-everywhere lady on her way back to the city. That's some pretty good chances.

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival (updated)

Let's get laughing babe!

Those that I am interested in:

The Lion, the Bitch and the Closet {update: It's really good and funny - especially the Closet and the Bitch. Love 'em. Thanks for the company Winnie..Too bad you missed out Sherly. I really thought you could use some laugh that's why I bought you the ticket. Oh I would love to go to more!!!}

Osama Bin Laden And The Tooth Fairy (not sure if I am gonna watch this but the name is surely comedian enough!)

My Brother And I Are Porn Stars (R18. Contains Nudity, violence and Christian porn) {update: crap show. Don't go even if the tickets are free. Waste of time really. The most important thing in theatre that always fails to be shown - plausible story line. Sorry Sherly, you watched something with such nothingness in it.}

Be My (Kent) Valentine

Bombay to Beijing by Bicycle

Fangs and Fetish (this is pricy)

Btw for those who are interested if you watch it on Thursday 13 to Sunday 16 April you will pay less than the full price. Student concession applicable.

Confessions of a shopaholic

Mind split into two while on the train coming back to the city. To buy or not to buy. Something popped up. Winnie suggested that I should go to Sydney while she was there. Actually that was a very good offer indeed. What is better is that she reminded me that I had actually planned to go to New Zealand in the semester break or later in the year.

The decision was quite clear now. I ended up buying no boots but polish kit (HA-HA). Actually there wasn't any boots that I liked and could afford. There was a pair which was $600. To comfort myself I bought some very nice New Zealand Ice-cream (after long deprivation). See - the sign was already lurking around...NZNZNZNZNZ...

Just another lust that I had - I think I'll surely spend a lot of money on ties/undies when I start working (OK, I understand that the undies are not directly related to working). The ties/undies here are so fabulously HAWT. I could barely keep myself from "exploiting" them. Luckily NZ (or Sydney) kept me sane. It was a bit disappointing because I had wanted to buy a tie which I loved. But too bad I was one step too late and couldn't find it anymore. Even the sample that was on the model was gone.

Just another day of self-realisation and self-control, all for the greater good (i.e. spend more later?).

p/s: whoever is interested in going together please let me know.


Long, Old but PERSISTENT Record

I guess all non-bumiputra (i.e. aborigine) Malaysian grow up in a racist and religionist environment. I'd attribute that to the greed of the politicians and ignorance of the people. I do think that it's the advantage used to the benefits of all politicians over the world. Transform others' weaknesses into one's power of duress.

This link will bring you to a list of statistical estimations of how racist/religionist is the Malaysian government.

The one thing that I can relate to, and feel very strongly about - one of the incidence from the list that is applicable to my family. My cousin and my aunt were borned in China. They have come to Malaysia for 40+ years now? I think my aunt is still holding a red Identity Card (IC) while my cousin got hers after 20 years. A red IC differentiates a Malaysian's citizenship status. The normal non-Bumi with a blue IC is already treated like 2nd-class citizens. The red is just worse.

Quoting Oprah - when u open ur heart & willing to give to others, it will eventually come back to u.

I haven't physically got anything back from tutoring those kids at the community center. Nonetheless I am feeling good about it. Helping someone who is in need. And while I can give I better do!

I know I've always enjoyed teaching. My dad told me that too. He always thinks that teaching suits me (abundant space for debate?) due to me 'gentle' nature. Bet my siblings don't agree to that because of the yelling and screaming that have come from me. LOL. But thanks to the experience teaching my youngest brother every time I get home, I find those kids at the center not that hard to handle afterall.

And funny enough I find myself challenged all the time due to the materials, which I haven't touched for years! Like today valency configuration of electrons. Differentiation of trigonometry. Prepositions. Quadratic applications. I'd say I have done well, at least I don't think I misled them.

Strong as you are

As the body is signaling you, maybe it's time to give a little attention to the system that supports the soul.

If it gets tough, we are here for you to fall back on. If you just ask.

From a friend to a friend.


Awwww I am lusting after a pair of boots. There's a 25% sale on almost everything at Myer. I shouldn't have gone to the sinful place. Are shoes ever too much? I haven't had a pair of boots before. I am not as crazy as some people I know - where their shoes collections are just collecting dust as their owners only have 2 feet everyday? But will a sneaker boi turn up a notch and become a sneaker-but-occassionaly-boots boi?

The desire came from when I stared going to interviews and training in the past 3 weeks. I find myself liking the click-clock made when the shoes make contact with the surface. Also I saw a man wearing a pair of crocodile-leather boots. That totally ignited the fire.

Or shall I wait till the mid-year sale? I hope I don't go online browsing for more boots. Desire is the evil thing clouding my decision making. Actually the evil is me lah..


Jap me up

Crawled my way up from bed this morning. I felt that I was getting better at it. Had a look at myself in the mirror. Ummm, I remember the reason I woke up this morning. Right right, to chop off that ugly bush that was sprawling uncontrollably.

Had a bit of a struggle choosing today's outfit for the haircut and marketing. Yea I get fussy when it comes to vanity. But it's not too terrible I hope? 10 mins should be quite reasonable? Well, sometimes more but who's counting!

Let me turn the clock back a bit. I was on the phone with someone from Millenium Lifestyle to schedule my appointment. I was asked who would I want to do my hair. I told her, I could use anyone. Before we hung up, I asked her who would my hair dresser be then. She replied, "YOU DONT". "Wot? What do you mean by 'YOU DON'T'?". "Yea, YOU DON'T". More dumb-founded I became. And then at a split of a second, I realised that it was a name. A Jap name probably. Why would I guess that? I kinda saw the YOU-DON'T guy at the saloon in the afternoon when I was trying to see if there's any empty slot that I could squeeze in for a hair cut. He looked kinda new. For as long as I had gone to Millenium, there hadn't been any Asian male hair dresser.

So I met my YOU DON'T guy today. He was cute. I like the way he makes his hair, which I then told him that I would want him to dye my hair on my next appointment. Funny enough when I asked him if he was Japanese, he asked me if I was one! My eyes widened and blurted "Huh? Jap am I?". During the cutting/chopping/trimming process, I found that I looked more Jappie - it was more like, you know, I saw the same hair style on a male Jap model before.

The thing that I admire about him is that he understands the problem that I have with my hair. I have a bush of hair that is strong (read: stubborn) and it grows fast (read: more trips to the saloon). He understands that it's hard to style it, which I told myself, "Finally someone really got it". And when it grows, due to my funny shape of head, which I was once told that the top of my head was as flat as a table top, the sides will stick out like many sore thumbs. And he just took those "corners" off of my head. Yee-haa!

He just pointed out those observations quite quickly, in a very understanding manner, which impressed me. Finally, finally someone knew me (or my hair)! A female hair dresser wouldn't know my problem. A causasian male hair dresser wouldn't too coz his hair is soft and curly. Worse if you get a balding hair dresser. I can't possibly tell him I have got too much hair can I now? He would just pull out every hair follicle on my head.

As YOU-DON'T was finishing with the touch-up, I told him if I woke up 10 minutes earlier every morning then I would have time to properly do it like he did - blow-dry and curle it a bit. And he said, "Oh you definitely have to wake up earlier, because you have hair! If you don't then you don't have to wake up earlier." I was totally blown away with his wittiness. Good point taken. OK, I am definitely going back for him to dye my hair.

At the counter, when he was stamping my stamp-collecting card, he wrote his name down on it. It reads "Yu dai".

BB06 is coming back soon on Channel 10. Can't wait what's in house for me. With a BB Baby in Holland (un/fortunately the whole birthing process wasn't shown?), I can't even imagine what will the creative Oz BB can come up this year. I have to say that the level of surpriseness is raised every year.

With last year's "sex" bar highly raised then fiercely condemned, we still haven't seen the same level of liberation and craziness as some European BBs.

alf is always watching you BB.

Confessions world tour

Ah, the material gurl is out rolling her disco ball this time - with the world as her dancefloor except Australia.

The tickets in Paris were sold in 15 mins. FIFTEEN fucking minutes!! She did promise to tour down under if she was going to do the Harajuku girls. Guess wot, Jappie is in but Aussie isn't. Do you think the ball could get lost in transit while rolling across the pacific?

Please come Maddy..Even if I couldn't afford the ticket, it'd still be great to feel your presence here.

With the record spinning of the Confessions Tour Me, I, Myself and Others too!! self-declares partnership with the Material Girl/Woman/Mother =P. A whole new dancy-clubbish website.

My First Earned AUD

Today marked my first time getting paid in AUD!! And it was done easily - just have to sit in a boardroom in Langham Hotel at South Gate and you get to order room service - and on top of that YOU BLOODY GET PAID!!!

This is absolutely gorgeous. However, nothing comes free - I am afraid the expectation is challengingly high as well.

It was kinda funny at the start. I arrived early and thanks for that. I went up straight but couldn't find the room on the 10th floor (as I was directed by Mary, our Regional Manager). So I went down again and ask the bell girl - again I went up and down in vain. The thing is that I shouldn't be able to access the floors that I went to but thanks to a few hotel guests - their keys let me access those floor when they were scanned.

Last resort, afraid that I was going to be late - I went to the reception. And guess what? They sent a security to ESCORT me up there. Hahaha...

Btw I was grilled, fried and put on the table (摆上台) during the training as well... Sweating, blushing, muttering were all I did...Lousy..Good experience though. I at least learned some new problem solving skills (see later post maybe).

It was a good day today. And I shall now get back to my Business Law tutorials. Not very looking forward to Wednesday - 10am to 6pm, which I am pretty sure I'll fall asleep in the last 3 hours no fail.

Just one last point that I have to bring up is that sometimes I feel like sleeping my way through to Cranbourne or Pakenham or Frankston while taking a train to uni. This is highly possible to happen tomorrow coz the first 3 hours of lecture are going to be hypnotizing. I understand how you felt Foo Ee Lin (Happy Birthday btw)!

Can someone find the Middle East (no pun intended)

Finally they caught up

This isn't really timely but isn't this something to look forward to?
