Appreciating 2014

Initially thinking that I'll end blogging in 2014 with my previous post. But I was loitering around the internet as usual, and end up blogwalking on several blogger's blog that I've followed for years. Makes me reflect on how unappreciative I am by writing something neutral (and somehow a little emotional) instead of being positive with 2014.

Honestly 2014 was a year that I've faced a little challenge on the 'real friend stays' problem and one of the most obvious phase where I learnt more about myself because of certain changes and adjustments. Nevertheless, I thank God for all these changes, and all the blessings that surrounds me every now and then.

Just very recently somebody told me: "If it wasn't you I didn't know how I can get through all these while". Well its sort of like that because I ain't gonna quote the whole exact phrase. (I too heard if from another friend of mine couple months ago.) Anyways listening to it again struck me kind of deep inside where I feel lucky and blessed. I admit that I've been neglecting certain people around me or didn't give them as much as they've paid attention on me, and I feel very guilty for that because I can't do anything to make it better. But I thank God for all I've gone through with all these friends that accept the change in me and how I treat them, still treats me as a friend and never ignore me for what I've did. They're all friends that are willing to open up and talk about the problems we've faced, and willingly too to not give up on what we've built up, to work out the whole friendship thing. I'm thankful for all of them.

Been talking to quite a number of people and processing so as reflecting with the relationship I had with my family and friends. Especially about families and it made me realized that I've very understandable parents that I can really talk to, even have the urge to tell them things about me or even listen to things about them. I know that within my circle of friends, it's a rare situation to have that close kind of connection. I'm grateful that I have parents that trusts me and didn't have any high expectations on me (in a way where I think that they won't give me pressure to achieve certain absurd target in life); they let me have the chance to choose my own paths in life as long as I am happy with my choices. I'm grateful that they'd accept the decisions I've made (with negotiation of course) and gave me support so as encouragement because their assurance really meant a lot to keep me going.

My relationship with God has too been on a rough ride this year. It hits the highest and also the lowest note this year. But I'm thankful that the connection, the love is still there. I'm glad I have the companion and testimony from brothers and sisters that's on the same boat with me giving me advice so as reminders for me to keep hanging on with the faith. I'm thankful that I wasn't gave up on, even though I've swerve into several wrong directions. I still long for the days that I've felt real peace and happiness, enjoying the privilege I have by being His child. Thinking that I haven't hit the highest tide yet but I pray I'll have enough strength by then to sail through it. I really need a boost, I need to be filled with eagerness again.

I'm thankful for the love and care I had from people around me. The lost of grandma when I was in Perak in January has shown me how much people around me care about me more than I did to myself. Loosing material things that's kind of expensive(?) or getting sick and having people around me that worries more than me and helping me out even though they owe me nothing makes me realize how lucky I am to have them (Some people just don't give a damn but these friends around me really really cares). Having best friends that doesn't give a shit on how long you didn't contact them but still treats you like the most important person in their life reminds me that how blessed and unworthy I am to have all them. Having extended family members be it organic social ties or mechanical social ties (woo with the social science terms ahaha) that still cares about my existence every now and then even when I'm away (somewhat away despite the holidays) from home for almost four years makes me too, feels very very touched because I'm not forgotten. (even though I no longer feel that I belong in their circle every time I go back ah well that bounds to happen)

Lastly. Kind of I don't know, highlight of my year? The part where I always struggle to write or not to write. To publicize or not to. So here goes nothing, since well, I didn't want to keep these thoughts inside of me to strangle and suffocate myself. There's time where I never thought this (being in a relationship) has actually happened to me only until I'm with him physically. Being with him taught me new things about myself and learnt to adjust into a new perspective of living. (I've been crazy single living in the wilds and flying everywhere in the past LOL) Honestly, I didn't know he's the kind of guy that I'd settled to, but I'm glad that we're able to click even though there's still several disagreements in between. It's like, I didn't knew I'd be compatible with this kind of guy (who's literally out of my league) and actually be comfortable with, somehow enjoying it too :P Haha. I don't know what the future will bring to us, but I'll be appreciating every moment being with him. Collecting his smiles is the best thing I can think of hehehe.

2014 was a year where time past at a 'just nice' pace, which I never did experience before, it was usually faster than expected. I thank God for this year, and looking forward to what 2015's gonna bring to me. Deciding not gonna make any resolutions this time round, will just go with the flow.

2015, C'mon baby! Hahahahaha. Wish all of you random people Happy New Years Eve and Happy New Year in advance! God bless. :)

去泰国玩就好像 去就去咯的感觉
胖了就像 胖就胖咯 没什么的感觉
读书就好像 有学没学到都无所谓的感觉

好像有一点随便 有一点怀疑自己到底有没有在意这一切变化的发生

今年 真的没什么事
没什么特别 很平淡 真的很平淡

或许 已开始慢慢了解自己

或许 瞳孔和思绪不再那么在乎自己的事
已经很少去为自己的事反省 为自己的事烦恼 为自己要求很多

原来 世界不再自我 不是一个人后

这样的改变 我会不会喜欢呢

要飞 就飞翔的自由

安全感的定义 也慢慢改变

It was autumn.

It was autumn.

The season where nature changes it colours and dies into it's origin.

The season where the sky turns grayer than ever, 

where the people's emotion turns melancholy.

It was autumn.

The season when the wind was no longer something that people desire.

The season where people begins to long for the sun that they wished it was never burning so brightly during the summer.

The season when the temperature of the surrounding decides to be even further apart from your our own.

But, it was a season where the temperature never gets colder than the human heart when it decides to stop loving. 

It was autumn.

The abandoned pavement met the dandelion.

It was believed to be drifting in the winds for some time.

Searching for a place to settle.

Little did the pavement knows. 

It was not a good place for anybody or even anything, to settle there.

Except for shoe prints.

Or maybe, the rain.

Just, something temporary.

Little did the dandelion knows.

It settles at the place where something good wouldn't happen.


The wind blows.

And the dandelion leaves.


The dandelion was too tired to vanish directionless into the wind 

and it decides to root just, 

right there. 


It was autumn.

The season where colours of the leaves blend and harmonized, 

as they embrace their death.

The season where the colder temperature holds two people who were in love even closer than ever, 

as they long for heat.

The season that reminds us that we're all lonely people.

Needing love to live.

Giving thanks.

I'm quite moved by the whole 'positive movement' thing on Facebook and although I was challenged by several sisters to do the 5 days giving thanks status sharing, I can't seem to do it. That's because I had to do it in Facebook, and I felt very naked showing all those emotions of things I've been through on Facebook. But it doesn't seems weird if I share here though, maybe because I needn't have to interrupt other people's view (their timeline) or as if I purposely want people to take notice of my life.

So here goes to a very long list of what I wanted to give thanks to the Lord, as he has given me more blessings that I can't keep the counts with my only two hands.

1. I thank God I like writing and have this platform (blog) for me to share. This is because it has became a great medium for me to express and share my thoughts. I needn't keep it or tell anyone (because sometimes I feel like I bother people if I tell them my personal things and there I would worry about people impressions on me too)

2. I thank God that DiGi didn't approve my change of call plans to postpaid, because if I do, I can't call Rebecca (my childhood and current best friend for life) and also Mummy as long as I want for free. (I'm using easy buddy and there's free calls for me everyday for my buddies! Hehehe.)

3. I thank God that He's been listening to my prayers ever since I don't know when. I seek to have closer relationship with Him and want to have the eagerness for His words and starting from the conference I joined not long ago until now, I've been having at least a little moment a day where I will spend my time with Him.

4. I thank God that He gave me a willing heart to serve and also a group of brother sisters to serve with together here in UKM. He knows that I need a very positive and encouraging environment to keep living on and yes, He is very faithful in giving me the privilege to serve under that very encouraging ambiance.

5. I thank God that I never have to worry about not having food to eat or not having enough money to spend whatsoever. He's been very gracious and a provider always because when I thought I will have not enough money to pay my fees for this whole semester, He miraculously snapped me out of my worries as He has provide more than I need now.

6. I thank God I was put into a college with a bunch of friends that really really understands me. Like seriously. They knew I don't like clingy people and always forgive me for ffk-ing them sometimes. They always knew that I am active instead of staying with only college friends kind of type so they allow me to be myself and not forcing me to stay with them. Last night, my roommate, the KP of our next big event even gave me a chance to choose my own partners because she knows I don't wanna be with the same people. T^T gandongdesuneh.

7. I thank God that the mission trip that I last joined and people I have served together with were still encouraging me in the way that I think about it almost every single day. Those people I met and the bonds we shared, the experience I have with them; the sharing from Reverend Lim from the conference until the last sharing among us members has left me with a great and very positive impact which goes on to moved my heart until this very second.

8. I thank God that it isn't too late for me to find out that I have always been staying in the right college because I have very very cute and very very friendly seniors + juniors. This year I got the chance to mingle a little bit more with them and I'm glad they're all not as scary as I thought. Eheh. Even Malay and Indian friends! I'm so glad I can befriend with them in a way where they've been really really nice and heart-warming.

9. I thank God I have people around UKM that continue to inspires me and making me have the urge to study harder (Esp my direct muahaha) and having a very similar attitude junior motivates me even more. OHH. And last Friday I met pastor Andrew and he shared to me about contemporary societies and how Jews, British, Chinese, Americans have developed or stayed developed as a very powerful society. Feeling a little mroe pumped up to work hard for my course this semester. Ganbatte!

10. I thank God that I have a chance to serve with The Bridge again in a primary school motivation camp in Klang. It's a very fruitful experience. At first I hasn't really mentally or physically prepared myself for the whole camp and I'm very worry that I didn't treat the children I'm to be in-charged of wholeheartedly. But it turns out to be a very wonderful lesson to learn. My group this time was surprisingly easy to manage compare to my last experience half year ago. (Maybe of the smaller number of people) But God has too show His mercy in making my group unusually small with 9 kids instead of 12 kids where other normal groups has. And there's this boy, call Vishva, his actions of repentance after two days giving me a lot of troubles have brought me to tears. It's impossible for me to remember that moment when he says sorry and the moment he shed tears where I accidentally saw.

11. I thank God that one of my best friend here in college has shared with me how her boyfriend got her to read the Bible and started praying to God. I always remembered that she once was the type of girl that has a lot to worry and a lot of things running in her mind but doesn't have any people to share with, the moment where she light up the incense at the temple but still she has no way to solve her problem; now she is different where I saw her giving thanks every night, and also told me that she has never experience this strength, this happiness and positivity ever in her life, until now.

12. I thank God that I have a lot of opportunities to serve Him. I remembered Sunday when I was the pianist of the Mass, I made several mistakes but Reverend Tang loud voices of singing and his smiles gave me courage to be calm and not panic. Haha. It's a weird mistake that I normally won't make because this time is purely because of carelessness and the lack of sleep (lesson learnt I will not sleep at 3am anymore lol especially on Saturday night).

13. I thank God that after campus life and the sharing from pastor Andrew I have learnt that my fear for clingy-ness have made me make a mistakes which is having a lot of touch-and-go friends. Because the fear of strings-attached but wanting to have more friends, I'm sort of the type where I have a lot of friends but 98 percent are all touch-and-go ones. But now I learnt that God has put several people especially my brother and sisters especially Thiam Hee, Chee Kang, Enie, Kelly Mah in my life where I should be closer to them if we really want to work this fellowship into a better direction. I'm glad I had quite some long talks with almost all of them and I really don't want them to think that I don't appreciate having them in my life, because the truth is, I do.

The list will goes on and on non-stop haha but I am in the mood to continue reading some academic materials back in ptsl. Fyi this post is a sudden urge to write after being in the library for 4 hours so I came to the cyber at UKM to update this post but mana tahu it takes me 1 hour. Nonetheless I feel very relief and happy to have my thoughts shared. :)

Until next time, God bless!

Tuesday, September 9, 2014


Felt a little discouraged and a little disappointed sometimes if brother and sisters ain't that enthusiast when it comes to outreaching to other students. I wanted to talk to the other student so much and want to search for the people prepared by God, then again, I didn't dare to fight alone.


Was cleaning up my desk and found a message I copied quite long ago. It's some sort of a reminder which I still wonder if I should share to them or not. But it's really quite 贴心 for my situation now.


- to be good enough for Him, like the pharisee in Luke 18 v 9-14

9 To some who were confident of their own righteousnessand looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11 The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12 I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’

13 “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’

14 “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”

- to get something from Him, like the older brother in Luke 15 v 22-32

22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.

25 “Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. 27 ‘Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’

28 “The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. 29 But he answered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!’

31 “‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’”

- to pay Him back for saving us rather than loving Him for it like the 'imaginary Paul' of 1 Corinthians 13 v 1-3

If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

- to impress others, like the pharisees of Matthew 6

- to belong, like Simon Magus in Acts 8 v 15-23

15 When they arrived, they prayed for the new believers there that they might receive the Holy Spirit, 16 because the Holy Spirit had not yet come on any of them; they had simply been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then Peter and John placed their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.

18 When Simon saw that the Spirit was given at the laying on of the apostles’ hands, he offered them money19 and said, “Give me also this ability so that everyone on whom I lay my hands may receive the Holy Spirit.”

20 Peter answered: “May your money perish with you, because you thought you could buy the gift of God with money! 21 You have no part or share in this ministry, because your heart is not right before God. 22 Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that he may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart.23 For I see that you are full of bitterness and captive to sin.”

- because you think He needs you, like Martha in Luke 18 v 38-42

38 He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

39 Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

40 Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, 41 “What do you want me to do for you?”

“Lord, I want to see,” he replied.

42 Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.” 43 Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God. When all the people saw it, they also praised God.

- in a way which assumes you don't need Him, like the disciples trying to drive out an evil spirit in Mark 9 v 14-29

14 When they came to the other disciples, they saw a large crowd around them and the teachers of the law arguing with them. 15 As soon as all the people saw Jesus, they were overwhelmed with wonder and ran to greet him.

16 “What are you arguing with them about?” he asked.

17 A man in the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. 18 Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.”

19 “You unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.”

20 So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth.

21 Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has he been like this?”

“From childhood,” he answered. 22 “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.”

23 “‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”

24 Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”

25 When Jesus saw that a crowd was running to the scene, he rebuked the impure spirit. “You deaf and mute spirit,” he said, “I command you, come out of him and never enter him again.”

26 The spirit shrieked, convulsed him violently and came out. The boy looked so much like a corpse that many said, “He’s dead.” 27 But Jesus took him by the hand and lifted him to his feet, and he stood up.

28 After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?”

29 He replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer.[a]”

Midnight scrambled thoughts.

Greetings from UKM, one an a half hour after midnight. (Guess I'll finish this 2 or 3 hours later) Seems like I'm back into night-owl sessions instead of staying conscious in the morning huh.

So this will be more of a wordy post since I'm lazy to go through any pictures and yes I'm in a writing mood right now. As always, this will be randomly written with no writing orders.

I just finished my first ever varsity year in UKM. (Actually that was weeks ago but I went to Japan so I delayed maybe like 3 weeks?) Through it all I know I'm far from blessed to things and knowledge I learnt and picked up along the way be it academically or through experience.

To me, one year has passed by with not very great impressions and neither it has any impact on me. I can't seem to 'find myself' for the first semester and also the first half of second semester. I only get the impression or feeling that I'm a degree student only starts at the second half of second semester in first year. Which is, 9 months after staying in UKM.

Since then everything started to make sense and I can finally follow the pace of being a degree student. Finally. To me it wasn't that late, I hope. And through some programmes I joined and friends I've met here, I get to know myself more, and what I wanted to achieve in the future seems to get clearer.

Thank God for everything.

Here's a little something off track that I wanna share about myself, this might hurt my future CV I think but I like it better if I'm more honest with my feelings. I don't wanna hide anything about me and I must write this out because I can't keep it for myself.

To be honest, via academically, I didn't quite learn a lot. I thought it might be the way where I see things have affected me to think so and I find it my very big weakness that I have no idea how to change. You see, starting second semester I blame on the academic system where I have to learn business and statistics since it's like not very related to my course. But then it does. It's just me that thinks that I'm no good in learning things related with figures that make me a little bias. So that's me. But I thank God He got me through all without giving up while making complaints. I thank God He gave me chances to learn with a bunch of cute friend and also with Dr.Vivian that sincerely and genuinely guided us through the learning process. Of course I'm not satisfy with the effort or attitude I have for this semester academically, but I'm glad I pull through everything without giving up.

Lesson learnt: I can differentiate what I didn't like but I must learn to upgrade the level of tolerance towards things that I thought I couldn't accept. Not everything you do will suit your likings, despite all changes and differences, you should learn to accept and learn for the better. No rugi too if I have extra knowledge right.

Next. Via hands-on programmes. Throughout this one year, honestly I say, I found out that I have an extreme attitude towards people, if it’s neither ways, then you’re in my neutral list of people.

I normally wouldn't have any opinion towards anybody, until you did something that caught my attention. I've learnt that I have the weaknesses in not being able to tolerate certain attitude and consider you as the ‘bad person’ immediately after you pick on my nerves FOR AFTER SOME PERIOD. I won’t judge you right after you do something wrong, but it kinda piles up and boom, there goes our relationship. Into ashes. Normally after you’re categorized as being so, it will need a lot of time for my opinion to change about one person.

But I normally wouldn't feel sorry for having this kind of attitude. I have my own limits but I cannot deny my way of settling things wasn't as matured enough to stay in the real world. Then again I think that’s being me. I like being honest with myself and towards people. Unless I know you’re the kind that wouldn't listen to other people advises then yes, I would not waste my thoughts or saliva on you.

Lord tells us to forgive our enemies. I can do that with time, but first let God’s love and time heal my wound.

By the way. This post wasn't written to aim on someone particular. It just kinda sums up some thoughts after learning myself better. I’m glad I learnt my weaknesses throughout this one year. I hope through time I’ll change for the better, and I will act more professional in future occurrence. Hopefully the same thing wouldn't repeat though.

Lord help me.

It's five year since I first started blogging. I mentioned from two blog post earlier that I started then, was because of the volunteers I encountered during The Bridge's camp that I joined when I was around 14 years old. I first knew the existence of blogger then, and became fascinated and too intrigued to write things that I myself compose. So, that's how it started. :)

I'm glad my blog was kept alive until now. Haha. It was not frequently update I know, but I still have the desire to keep it and update it now and then.

Some of the exclusives and not shared before on this blog. The old address to my past. I'm not ashame of them but yea. Hahaha it's nothing worth mentioning I know but here's down memory lane on a special day like this. :P

My first blog -
My second blog -
My third and currect active blog -

Reasons that made me settle on this blog, is Because I made a promise to myself although the first post didn't really make any sense. And. I'm glad the name isn't as cheesy or weird anymore as compared to my first and second blog? Haha. Meant to be my love is kind of attaching eversince too. So I'm happy with this and will be always contended with this.

I think if some of you notice, I have more than 3 blogs. Few other secretive lol private kinda blog, language blog, and some-official-academic-related blog. I too own micro blogs such as Myspace, Dayre, Tumblr. Wondering how I keep up with them? I too have no idea. See what my feelings lead me to choosing which to write on lah. Haha. I guess I'm the type that where I can't stay at one place for too long but will eventually miss them when I'm long gone and return to update. But one thing never change throughout the year is, I still love to write. :) I'm glad that passion's still there. I don't think it's more of an interest or so. It's a part of me which I cannot let go of.

You are always here with me.

I admit. My life was in a downpour and all I do was to wait for miracles to happen. Without myself doing anything. Yes. I was waiting, but not making effort. I gave thanks to the Lord in opening up a chance for me to experience His love and grace again. I was afraid to shut my heart on Him, and reject all the promises He gave me. Sometimes, in faint hope, I prayed that my heart won't give up on His grace, and He listens. He listens. Deep down, I know without Him I am nothing. Deep down, I know without His love, I won't be who I am today. I will be worse. I will be walking the street and not living a real life. I mean. With God. With His grace, with His love. I found life. I found life with true happiness, everlasting love and hope. As sang by Britt Nicole herself, it says that "No matter what comes, God will never leave." I believe in that, but I somewhat take it for granted. Until my feelings really get cold with Him. I felt lost again. God mentioned that to love Him, it's either to love Him with all your heart, or not at all. It's took me a hard time turning back, the road was forever going and not coming to an end, but at that moment where I found Him, I dread to feel the emptiness without Him again. I don't want to be away from His words, His love, His grace, His presence. Finally I know what it is like to have faith on God as my shelter with all His covenants and promising words. Thought I was lost but I didn't fear as much. I wasn't insecure. I wasn't unsure about His love for me. Thought I was lost but I didn't lost hope in being able to find my way back. I know I'll find Him eventually. I know I will. I know my Father will be right there waiting for me to come back. He'll let me learn through the mistakes I've made, and make me learn the lessons through the roads I've gone through. I know His love for me will never fade.

Lord, thank you.

The Alphabet Tag

A. What is your Ambition?
I don't really have an ambition. I'm quite open with what I will be doing in the future as long as I enjoy doing it and it's pay is sufficient to give me a comfortable life.

B. Boyfriend or Girlfriend?
Never so far. Single for 20 years now. Haven't found the right one I guess. Even if I said I have the gamophobia every time, I hope I'm just joking. :P

C. Favourite Chocolate?
So far. Ritter Sport topped every brand that I've tried before! :9

D. Dog person or a Cat person?
Doggie of course. Definitely will get one in the future if got chance! Ain't no wanting cat because, uh, cat is not a friend. Cats treat people like you're their slaves lol.

E. Situations you've Experienced that you missed the most.
Recently it's the motivation camp that I've volunteered in. And it brings back memories to the times where I'm in youth fellowship. I miss that too. Sobs sobs. :(

F. Family?
Mummy is always a supermom and daddy is always the protective dad. Mummy lets go but daddy questions everything. Two perfect combination though, I'm quite balance-ly brought up I must say. I'm the eldest child in the family. I have a younger brother who's quite handsome I think and currently studying in a college back home. My youngest sibling is my sister which, I think she's a duplicate of the old me. Hehehe.

G. Goals. Long and short terms.
Long term - Upgrading myself in every aspects. Learn new things and mastering old skills!
Short term - Study hard to try to get a scholarship T^T

H. What makes you Happy?
Little things. :) That are related to appreciation, cherish, love, care. Things that makes my heart feels warmth especially. ^_^

I. Music Instruments that you play.
Piano. Guitar. Hehe. Not skilled type tho. I can play. But probably not perform. XD

J. Jobs that fascinates you.
Jobs that brings impacts and positive changes to people's lives first hand. Wide range actually, from teachers to volunteers to social workers etc.

K. Opinions about Kisses.
Errrrrrrr. No comment. Haha. But I still kiss my own mummy and daddy! You should too :*

L. Opinions about Love.
First, is the love of God - Agape and Phileo. Second... Often I will ask God to take away feelings that aren't from Him (esp when I have absurd crushes or admiration that I cannot tahan lagi) I've once read a book call "I kissed dating goodbye" *recommended* and it kinda changes my opinion on falling in love. Love is an act of giving. The willingness to serve your partner and also capable to make them a better person.

M. Movies that you wished to watch again.
Inception. Star trek. I dunno. Marvels. Yea all the marvels.

N. Nerd, Geek, Dork or Dweeb? Why?
Somewhere in the middle of dork and geek... I think. I don't know if I'm intelligence enough to be a nerd or a geek. But I'm definitely not a total dork. I mean. I socialize duh. But only when I wanted to. I don't think I have problems in socializing either. Lol. This is bringing me into a black hole. I'm normal okay. Normal.

O. Something you're Obsessed about.
Uhh. Are we stuck in the nerd or geek talk again? Lol. Anyway I think I'm kinda stuck on social websites. Back then it was television and lengthy novels. Now it shifted. And. It's not a very productive or fruitful change I must say.

P. People that inspires you.
Those volunteers and brother sisters that accompanied and has been there with me throughout my rebellious years when I'm in youth fellowship. They're really people that inspires me which I still look up to until today. All of them.

Q. Queen of your heart? Why?
MOMMMMMMMMY. Because she's the best. Haha.

R. Some of the favorite books you have Read?
Recently only academics one. I missed reading fictions. :( I don't have favorite books/novels or any particular author that I prefer either.

S. Spiritual Life.
Without God, I am nothing. Everything I do in life, is for the Glory of His Name. My life breathes God, and I live for God alone. He is the source of my strength, the reason to my happiness.

T. Traits or Things you notice in a person that you admires.
Tall. Single eye-lids but roundy type? hehe. Thin. Speaks and write understandable English. Some talent or skills maybe? haha. Kind, humble and not boasty type. Knowledgeable like daddy but pandai jaga duit like mummy. Somebody that documents memories, be it writing or photography maybe. Most importantly is loves God. Yerr so many 要求. Hahaha.

U. Something you're Unable to accept.
People that compliant all the time and being all negatives only. Beh tahan. Really.

V. Places you wanted to go for a Vacation.
Europe, Copenhagen, Rome has always been the places I wish to go. But currently is Japan first la. Then if minimize the scope, is backpacking at whole Malaysia. Sabah is at the top of the list. And oh, I wanna go Taiwan too! Singapore perhaps? That's it I think. Haha macam banyaknyer.

W. Your Writing habit.
I LOVE WRITING. You see, I normally don't share through face-to-face kind of sharing eventhough I like doing that too. Sometimes I would prefer writing a blog post or write on twitter when it's only one short moment of thoughts. I normally tell my feelings to twitter though. So it's kinda a little negative there because it's where I express my unhappiness. Better not sharing what you're upset to people and making them upset right? 写写后忘记就好了。不牵涉别人。

X. Your X-ray Experience.
Erm. It was before entering UKM. Nothing much though. Except that day I brought Elyn and Menda with me and a whole pot of porridge so I can feed her. Awwh kesian she has to follow me to places where I run my errands. But she's been a good girl. I miss her. :'(

Y. Yucky Food.
Ermmmmmm. I'm not very picky leh. Other than durian and cucumber, I think I'll eat mostly anything la. As long as it looks yummy. Hehe. Feast the eyes before my tummy yo!

Z. Zits.
Zits? Pimples? LOL. Of course I have them. I think my condition is not so good. I hope for smooth non-pores skin but I guess I'll never have them. Mostly are scars now and seriously, the pores are very visible. :(

育华小学三天之旅 (下)

从新和文桥的回忆 —— 营会三天没夜

非常非常非常的感恩说,这不是一个让学生们过夜的营会!*松一口气* 这是因为,当我以为一位助长(我)面对十五位组员不是一件很难的事时,我发觉自己大错特错了。第一天,可以说还好,精力满充沛的;第二天,身体开始有一点撑不了;第三天,还打瞌睡了好几次。


我更感动的是,他们在Superstar In Action里的演出。排练时,因为自己的声音不是很大声,为了能够让他们在偶尔的闲聊或吵闹中注意听我的指示时,我喊得自己快破喉咙了。至今我都觉得自己说话有些沙沙的。

一起编排了故事内容,角色和对白后,我不打算插手了。他们投票选了“跳舞”后,说实在,我内心有些怀疑他们能不能做到,又不能拒绝他们的决定因为拒绝就代表说自己看不起他们;可是我跳舞都没啥经验的,除了几次已有人编排的舞步而参与罢了。所以,这次我坦白告诉了他们:“美美姐姐不会跳舞哦,你们两个组合要自己想舞步的。” 他们就开始紧张,一组尽然跟我说要迟回因为要练习,另一组就要隔天早到因为要练舞。哈哈,他们紧张又认真的摸样,好可爱。隔天,好多组员开始紧张一直一直问我问题,我坦白说,回答的开始有些些敷衍。可是,看得出他们紧张和害怕时又不得不让他们觉得放心,所以记得自己好多句的回答都说,放心吧,一切都会没有错的。还有,随便跳几步就好了,记得有音乐就给我摇动身子呀!



从认识0人开始到几乎每个一共都大概接触过,我很感恩我信靠了神,不被自己的害怕胆怯给淹没。大家一起去吃 Kajang Satay;也认识了组员要为他找女友的 Chee Wei,要吓我的阿飘铭轩,帅帅又酷酷很generous的lend我helping hand的颂康弟,总是陪我说话的鸿恩,让我有点点怕怕可是其实不恐怖的心妍,笑到很漂亮的Elaine,让我不断想起自己妈咪的Mei Ling姐,笑声非常特别的秀秀姐,超级活泼可爱的金华姐,还有默默陪伴我的Hui Bin姐,Crystal,诗慧,小箐,Wendy,金美等~当然,还有非常温馨的燕群姐。:)

感恩上帝感动了我参与文桥的营会。感恩他赐我勇气,让我不看见我的不足和害怕,反而去学习信靠着祂的大能,凭着信心来参与这次营会。虽然快期末考了, 感恩上帝让我透过这次营会纾解了压力,更感恩能因此寻见起初服侍祂的那份爱,喜乐和满足。透过营员们我看见自己有好多好多地方得多多学习和加强,也透过他们而如今更加清楚认识我自己和未来的去向。感恩能遇见一般因为不同原因而有同样目标参与营会的义工们,他们的见证,对学生们的爱和付出鼓舞和激励了我要继续透过不一样方式来服侍祂,把福音的种子给散播出去,也让祂的爱飞翔~

P/S. I've been quite beaten for a while because I only have one particular life in UKM where everywhere I go it's UKM people or things related to UKM. Kinda have that 为什么没有新鲜感 punya life. I DREAD to have a life where there isn't any UKM people involved or something different where I can turn to if I wanna escape from life at UKM just for a little while. This camp made me find a way to have another life outside of UKM. I realized I've lacked the fellowship time where you build yourself up with His words instead of only working for God.

Being in UKM there's CLC where we will spread the Gospel quite frequently but there's not so much of fellowship where we can really build up that 温暖 punya feel or self-upgrading with His words kind of time. I missed YOUTH FELLOWSHIP. I miss GROWING HEART. Those were the life I kinda dread to have. Since I've found the missing part in my life, guess it's time to make a little change. Next semester I hope.

For now. Chiong for FINALS! *exam mode on*

育华小学三天之旅 (上)



从新和文桥的回忆 —— 进营的前和后
一个月前,芝君姐妹在Facebook上tag我关于文桥在召集义工的post。眼看有好几个小学可以做选择,因为太忙又有交通问题,所以自己只选了加影一带的小学帮忙。当下,还记得自己没有答应过要参加的方式下参与了。== 说实在,到现在为止我不曾在和小燕姐的沟通中说过Yes,我要做义工。可是,我感恩,当他开始assign我工作时,我没说no,也印着头皮一个人参加了这个团队。我感谢神,因为祂,让我感动多过一切所有的疑惑。

还记得,还没参加营会的前两个星期,一直都在忙着project, assignments, presentation, programme 和 quiz。还记得,营会开始的前两天,我都连续凌晨四五点才能睡,而且那两天内也交上好几份assignment,去quiz,和做了presentation。营会筹委所吩咐要做的组别卡,实话实说,因为紧张自己会是最后一个做好,所以在一个小时内就赶着把它做完了。至于舞蹈,我一个都没练。要进营的那天,还记得自己是在半夜十二点开始练到凌晨三四点,不tahan后才甘愿睡觉。



进营的那天,认识了欣儿和诗慧,两位很可爱的十五岁义工,信心也一点点的建立了起来了。(心想,socially awkward是我个人的选择,所以也放胆的,交了两个新朋友。)

Facts about Kuching you don't know ! (maybe some of you know these)


DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN THIS POST. It's originally from by アブン (all credits to this awesome guy) and I came across it on

Sorry for re-posting but I just HAVE TO let more people know about this.

by アブン on

Below are some interesting facts about Kuching that we do agree thanks to アブン who had the passion to list them down for us:

1. Kuching is the first city in the country where motorist can 'turn left when exit is clear' legally! (Now started to be implemented in Putrajaya)

2. More than 50% of houses in Kuching are Semi-D and bungalows which is more than any other cities.

3. There are more satelite dishes in the backyard of Kuching houses than other place combined together.

4. Most of Kuching pretty girls go out without make-up,wearing simple short, T-shirt and japanese slippers.(o.O)

5. Kuching is the city where the majority of family in here have the motto of 'one person one car' and not 'one family one car'. When the children get their license, they will eventually have their own car. Form 5 student will drive to school. Even when fuel price hiked the number of cars in a family will still be the same.

6. Kuching's roundabout is VERY VERY VERY big compared to other cities. It has the size of almost 1 and half the size of a football field. They could even build dozens and dozens of houses inside the roundabout and thousands of plants and trees in it.

7. The people here often refer the location in the city by using the word "mile". Example are 3rd mile, 4th mile, 5th mile and so on.

8. Many shops in the cities start to close their shop at around 6pm to 10pm at night.

9. Majority of the people in Kuching is more family minded than money minded.

10. Places that a tourist would most probably visit when they are at Kuching are Jalan Song (for the foods), Friendship park (for dating), Waterfront area (for the culture), cultural village (for the culture also), Damai Beach (for the beach), Santubung (for hiking) and various national parks (for the animals and plants).

11. Foods that should not be missed when visit Kuching are the famous Kolo Mee, Mee Po, Kampua mee, Laksa Sarawak, Kek Batik/Lapis, Kueh Chap and 7th mile teh C peng and most importantly our Tomato Mee.

12. When you order fruit juices at food courts, prepare to face the curious and blurry expressions from the locals there. Why? Local people seldom order fruit juice and fruit juices in Kuching is quite expensive. They mostly ordered Teh C Peng or Teh C Special (3layer drink).

13. Kuching has one of the luxurious and largest DUN (Dewan Undangan Negeri) building or could be said as palace.

14. The majority of people here are more civilized minded compare to other cities in Malaysia and most of them are very friendly.

16. Don't be surprised if you see non-malay speaking Iban/Sarawak language and malays speaking mandarin. Its a norm here.

17. Majority of local guys here have tatoo on their body.

18. Do not expect all the long houses to be made of wood, built in the middle of the jungle, with no electricity and water, surviving with only river stream nearby! Its not true. Most of the long houses here are already developed and looked like a long terrace house with abundant electricity and water supplies.

19. Most cars in Kuching are imported cars such as Porche, Mazda RX8, Nissan Skyline, Toyota, and Honda (this shows that the people here are quite rich). However, there are also a lot of Perodua Viva and Kancil (for renting and economic usage).

21. In Kuching, you can go kayaking in the sea, caving, jungle trekking, mountain climbing, shopping, national park visiting, visiting border town market(serikin-indonesia/msia) all within an hour's journey.

22. Kuching has a lot of churches.

23. Kuching is a city that has 2 salvation armies.

24. Kuching has a roundabout with a kindergarten and backpacker's lodge(Transit point) in it.

Jap #3



However, using Japanese to type is using more time and mental energy than I've expected. Although I've checked and changed the mistake using Google translate, I doubt if the sentences will make any sense or look funny.

Then again this is not my point though. My point today was, as you see in the topic, more different cultural differences analysis(?) LOL from me. More of my opinion lah not analysis WHY SO geekily SERIOUS =.= And I'm certainly not a majime. Hehehe. Maybe I am? I don't know.

When saying "Thank you", Japanese will reply in a variety of answers. Unlike Chinese, it's always a reply of "不客气" or "不用谢" which means it's okay or my pleasure or there's no need of thanks. When Japanese will feel it's more polite to say as much thank you as you can, as Chinese you would kinda feel shy if someone keeps saying thank you. However, if Malay or any other Bumi who has Malay as their mother tongue, they'd probably reply you "sama-sama" which means same to you. For English, what's mostly heard will probably be "You're welcome", or "My pleasure." As for the variety of replies that I mentioned before, here are some examples where Japanese will answer you after you told them thank you, or doumo arigatou gozaimasu.

- Kochirakoso, arigatou. (More like Malay's reply of "sama-sama")
- Doitashimashite (You're welcome.)
- Daijoubu/ Iie (It's fine, It's okay)

Japan is not a dating country. Hehehe okay this may sounds a little exaggerated but I think it's getting better throughout the era of globalization lol. Unlike in Korea or any western or more open minded country, you'd see public displays of affections anywhere you go and people wouldn't find it weird or they won't even stare at you. I think it still depends on how open minded the Japanese lover you're dating but most/majority of them will feel shy for holding hands in public. (that's what I heard and I'm looking forward to ask more Japanese friends to make sure) Of course hugging or kissing is kinda weird to do in public. Lolol I know it's the same in Malaysia la. But how about during farewells like when your lover is going travelling on a plane and you had to say goodbye in the departure hall?

Most Japanese guys wanted their wife to stay home and be a housewife. Ermmmmmm. I didn't have Japanese friends who has married yet but yeaaa. I think it's their lack of daycare or nursery center in Japan which allow this phenomena to happen. I know Japan is a developed country but to have this kinda thing happen there at this generation, I want to see or experience life there myself to double confirm.

Japanese people wouldn't show expressions or feelings and affections. Okay I think this might may be exaggerated and generalized too which I shouldn't do but heyya who cares. Alright here's what I mean. Just like most of the boys have grown up in the environment where they're urged to "be a man" no matter what and not share their feelings or even not allowed to cry because doing that will make you look sissy, Japanese guys are more of like still having the higher status than women kind of being. In Japan, being touche with your family members especially parents are kind of a hard to witness situation. You don't really see Japanese son hug their mum(?) OH I so hope this isn't true cause it kinda sounds sad. But yea I guess that's kind of their beliefs as boys are seen as masculine and non-manja type and man-ish. Those who acted soft might be more of a rare case. Which brings me into my next point.

Uhhhh wait. I think I've pointed this out before in Jap #2. But I'd like to add on is in Malaysia, you can see the extremes of emotions in their faces. When people or friends are happy or sad, their face and tones of speaking will state the obvious. But for me, I think Japanese sometimes will keep it to themselves. I don't mean like not sharing their feelings or something like that but, it's like they don't go extremes or think it's very necessary to show their feelings that much? So okay if you'd want me to show you their level of emotions shown on their faces everytime with a figure here goes.

Here. Hehehe. Okay the red color lines is the Japanese people expression levels while the blue ones are Malaysians. It'd always be more show-ness for Malaysians compare to Japanese.

Man are hard workers, however.. Okay. So here's something I heard too. But I admire them. In Malaysia you might find women has equally or sometimes more leadership skills and often hold high positions for their jobs. While you may find men who are least of what woman here is. I didn't say men in Malaysia are not capable, I said, YOU MAY FIND THEM HERE, in Malaysia. So in Japan, men doesn't care about how much their partner might earn, they just want to be solely capable in winning the bread or making enough money to support the family.They're probably seem as more responsible and the hardworking ones, stressing to make sure every family members will be taken good care of. So yea. I hope I make my point. However, the suspension is actually going back to my previous point where, they would mostly hope their wife stays home and be the home administrator. Which I kinda think it's a little unfair if their partner is well educated and wanted to work in the corporate world or so. I believe there is understanding man who will let their partner goes out to work though, but with the daycare issue, I'm still not sure how the real thing goes...

You can't use ha? when you want someone to repeat something towards Japanese people. I think it's normal for the Chinese culture, or maybe Malaysian's culture to reply a HA? once you didn't heard what the other person says or you wanted them to repeat. But in Japan, I don't know why, YOU JUST CAN'T. Because it's rude to them if you do so. If you want them to repeat the word, either you reply them with Eh? or "mou ikkai" or "mou ichido" which means one more time.

Everything, is just high standard. I mean, that's what you expect in a developed country anyways. People working at the department stores to restaurants that serve you their daily meals, they'll give you a one-hundred percent polite and happy faces when they serve you. Even vending machines(fyi Japan is a vending machine heaven lol), like one of those vending machines at the most random places, such as this:

will work absolutely fine even it's out of nowhere! Like literally every drink options will be available and non-working or drinks unavailable cases are rare yo! Unlike Malaysia, especially UKM, the vending machines here are super annoying in which, some drinks inside, might be out of stock and it'll take forever for somebody to stock it up. Even worst, the vending machines here might experience vandalizing! And talk about the service attitude in Malaysia, le sigh. It might be normal for somebody to be moody and serve you with a smelly face or some bad attitude. I don't know why, but it's very normal here.

Right. Maybe this post might sound a little or a lot of stereotyping but yeah I apologizes if it offended you in some way probably. These are just opinions that I find interesting and would like to talk about and to really experience it first hand so I could KNOW if it's really really true or not.

Pictures first. Since the last two post has been wordy. Very wordy. Hehehe.


Then it's Food Paradise Festival where Rina-san, Yuki-San and Shota-san set up a stall to make Japanese food which is ONIGIRI and OCHAZUKE! Heeeeeeee.

Then it's International Language Festival ;) Thank You Nezu Sensei for helping me wearing this Yukata! I like the blue ones better though but lol blue are often a boy's colour for their Yukatas(?) Didn't take picture with the Happi though T^T 


Korean Food - Gimbap (Korean sushi), Tteokbokki (Spicy Rice Cakes) and Kimchi Pancake. YUMMEH and super cheap yo!

Thanks to Irfan I have fast pace days but AWESOMEEE. 
Love the guitar but sad I have to give it back to him when he returned though :(

Last Sunday I went to Shah Alam for Amigos Club's programme. I felt kinda dragged there but thanks to Shari (Blue hat) I had crazy fun! I thought I'd be freaking afriad of heights with climbing trees and stuff but I pushed on. It's only cause there's no turning back once you climbed up a 5 storey height's tree =.= Had to continue on BUT IT WAS FUN! And somehow I kinda conquered my fear for heights? Hehehe lemme tell you why later.

Sunway Lagoon!

Jenggggggz! So this is why. I actually said to Rina-san let's go once she asked me if I wanted to. Without any hesitation. And normally I'd be afraid of normal roller-coaster too but this time I rode the VUVUZELA. Google up that if you don't know. Haha I think I'm super cool now! Lol thanks to Epy who dared me to go at first. I'm like why not? Type of mood you know since I thought it will be nothing else different compare to Skytrekking. So yea. (Y) However a little disappointing when I found out that guys (more to saying Epy and Yuki-san XP) is afraid of seen-able heights(?) Don't know how to explain but they didn't wanted to go on with the Flying-fox. So urm maybe wrong assumptions but I didn't confirm with them lah. Hehe.

Healthy disgusted looking strawberries but cheap! Been trying to eat healthy since I kinda gained weight but... I can't differentiate when's my stomach's boring or hungry. This sucks.

Bored on the preparation for college dinner. ZZZ. I was glad I slept gao gao and only go there in the afternoon. I thought I wasn't important in the part of preparation and I was kinda right. My job only starts when the real event starts. Eheh talk like I'm the star of the show, but nahh just somebody who stands backstage. But seriously, I was at the backstage for the event the whole time. Like literally.

At least the best part is I got to wear pretty-pretty and take pretty pictures. Haha.

So these were actually bigger events wear there's photo documentation lol and here comes wordy updates. Haha. I was getting busier though and I kinda like it since my past uni life (at least months ago) I think I actually slept through in order to have time passed by faster. These days it just, passes normally and I actually feels like I've done things.

Presentations, assignments, programmes, projects. It's making me busier but I felt good with it. Sort of like, I'm living again. My life is alive again, you get what I meant? Then again there's the downside of it where I didn't have time to get my clothes washed or even kept my room in a clean/ proper order. It's like, I'm living in a huge mess =.= Well sort of. Ok lah. That's enough update for now, gotta get some things done and go to bed yo!

お休みなさい。Goodnight! :)

Jap #2


This post was actually written because... (wait. Did I actually explain myself every time I update my blog?) Coming up with a reason is actually kinda annoying. Lol not coming up like I had to fake the reason but actually explaining why when I don't want to is annoying and really, it's actually unnecessary, right? Gahhh not going to answer that.

There's this differences thing between Malaysia and Japan that I somehow thought that it's quite interesting and I had to say or record it somewhere somehow. And here goes. (Erm did I actually just explain myself? Lol nevermind that.)

- Pauses - Le sigh I've actually went onto other websites for half and hour or so because I just can't really write another post when the one before was published like 5 minutes ago. But now. Yea I'm gonna try since. It's gonna get bright and sunny and I should sleep before the sun rise. (Sleeping when the sun rises, like a vampire/ likewise zombie. How irony.)

Ok so I'm gonna continue but all are going to be said later was based on my perspectives, not according to whose opinion or whatsoever reports or research. Just my opinion.

Japanese people speaks Japanese. Hehehe so blunt lol ok so I actually just knew Japanese people uses Japanese even in big or even some international events. Forgive me but I thought when English was to be known as an international language I thought in events people would adjust naturally? Here in Malaysia many politicians did uses Bahasa Melayu but on most international events they'd change to English! So yeaah. :/ Anyways! I got a little terrified by this fact because I'm so so afraid that I couldn't communicate with them at all but thank God! The couple of Japanese friends that came here to UKM speaks quite fluent Malay! (Better than me I think. Sobs.) And some friends I made recently speaks quite good English too! (Ah but this is because he's mix raced like me) But anyhow I'm glad I'm learning Japanese so at least I know a little now! And definitely will learn moarrrrrrrrr.

Japanese people respect the elderly and has a clearly divided bureaucracy. Erm I actually knew this quite long ago but until now I'm still not very sure how the real situations would be. I saw an article on Japan Times saying that the whole system was like an upside down pyramid diagram which shows the loaaaaaaaaaaaaads of elderly are all on the top part of the upside down pyramid and pressuring the little amount of yonger generations. I don't know if I can cope with this though if I'd to experience that. Other than that, people with a higher status are often highly respected where you can't skip statuses and do anything you want to without their permission or acknowledgement. (Erm confusing? I'm kinda lazy to explain though but whoever understands congrats! Hehehe.)

Japanese people love their toilets and baths. So yeaa. I think it's because of their technologies though. And all of them (I think) bathe with warm water! I wish I can here but... It's just impossible.

Japanese people says shouganai(na) or shikataganai but... Shouganai or shikataganai means something like "nothing can be done" or in Malay it's more to expression such as "biarkanlah/ biasalah/ takpelah." I actually thinks that Malaysians have this shouganai's spirit when something happened to them they just... let it go, you know? They wouldn't be that bothered unlike in western countries where individualism is emphasized. However, when I thought where Japanese people says shouganai(na) or shikataganai almost every time something bad happened, one of my Japanese friend told me Malaysian has the shouganai's spirit where... They can't seem to accept. Here's why in my next point.

Japanese people stressed on quality. Let's take vending machines for an example. If vending machines in Malaysia has no Cola but only Pepsi, Malaysians wouldn't probably have any feelings on this kind of situation. They'd either opt to buy Pepsi, or just go away not buying anything without any opinion at all. But for Japanese people, they'd be kinda stressed out and thinks that why is this happening, why nobody refills the freaking vending machine or why is the machine giving problems? I think in Japan people are used to have good working ethic and everything is always/ have to be in tip-topped condition whereas in Malaysia we don't really expect a lot from our surroundings. Do you think this type of working ethics are one of the reason that we don't really improvise?

Working long hours and getting your job done, is a must. In Malaysia, working hours may start at 8am but workers would arrive at 9am. Tea break + lunch hour may took them 2 hours each. Working hours end at 5pm but they may leave at 4.30pm. In Japan, NOBODY DOES THAT esp when you're newly employed. At least that's what I knew(?) So anyways, daily errands have to be done on that day and working extra hours is NORMAL(must). If you leave early, other employees will think that you're weird, or lazy.

Japanese people doesn't really show their affections/ emotions, especially guys. When I knew Japanese couple are not okay with holding hands in public I'm like. NANDESUKA?! Imagine not hugging or kissing. Lol I mean like on farewells like when you have to send your husband or wife off in the airport when they have job abroad you just don't HUG. T^T This is like a super sad love story for me you know. And one I just knew lately is... Japanese guys tend to show this bold and manly image where they doesn't use words or actions to express their loves, even to family members. I asked them if boys hug their mothers or being 'manja' towards family members they're like NOOOOOOOOOO! They aren't allowed to shout (of course this is very impolite) but not even cry in front of anyone. T^T super duper sad lah. Ok so it's very normal for Malaysian students to miss home and go back home every time it's semester break or whenever they have extra time on hands but the Japanese doesn't feel this way! My Japanese friends were actually shocked when they first knew about how we're always desperate to go back home. GAHHH but it's home and family! How can you resist?!

Japanese people love and respect their own country. I think this is because there's only Japanese in Japan and there's no conflict there. It ain't like here, where we have so many races, religions, languages, culture going on. But I salute on how Japanese people stand for being Japanese. They'd wear kimonos or yukatas like it's the most normal thing ever, speaks Japanese (duh of course) and love their on country (at least somehow it's different like what I experienced here in Malaysia!) So if you're in Malaysia religion (of course) is somehow a sensitive issue where it was mostly the initiators of all conflict. Second, if you'd see any other races other than Malay to wear baju kurungs or other races to wear otherwise it'd be kinda weird! And... Talk about the national language. To those who didn't use Malay as their mother tongue especially among the Chinese, speaking Malay fluently is actually kind of rare. I've learned about Malaysia where it's in the progress of being a "Negara Bangsa" where people would be patriotic and nationalistic towards Malaysia itself but somehow you can see it's getting harder from generation to generation. 

Alright I'm gonna stop here first though, well of course there's more on cultural differences. There are really a lot more to say but the bird's chirping and I don't know if I still wanna write another post update on my recent life or not. Anyways I wanna repeat in saying that all these were my perspectives ok, it's only an opinion so if it actually brings you to great disagreement I'm sorry if it offended you and I'd like to know why. Heh.

Jap #1

See the #1? There is definitely moaaaaaaaaaar coming up on this topic. HEHEHE.

お早う ございます。えーと、今もう朝ですか?ww
Once again I'm not sure if my Japanese sentences were properly structured or does it really make any sense but yea I'm still learning so it's better to use it even though I make mistakes right?

"Language is a tool - you eventually have to use it in order to learn" - As said by Jun from Rachel and Jun's youtube channel. And IT'S TRUE! Recently I've been lacking in practicing it because I've been so busy until last night.

I'm back to business baby! Eheh not really though but I finally got some free time to myself I decided to youtube all night long. LOL part of the reason I do this is because I miss youtubing/blogwalking; I slept for the WHOLE afternoon after Japanese class yesterday (I was sick and had to lay in bed but magically gotten better ever since I woke up); and I ate dinner at 11pm or so? (I couldn't let myself to sleep after eating fried rice and fried eggs to sleep at that hour! I'm already gaining weight and sleeping after that is just. PIG.)

Ok so enough with the life update I'll do it later after this post if my mood for blogging is still there. So anyways. As you can see from the title. I wanna talk about JAPAN. Or being an Weaboos, or some people would call them Hapanese; Japanophile; Wapanese; or even an Otaku. You can search urban dictionary online for the exact definition cause I'm not going to do that Lol but what I'm going to tell you is that all these words that I mentioned actually related to other words such as Fag, Nerd, Geek, Gay, Stupid, Yellow Fever and Hentai (LOL) etc in the synonym list(?)

Why did I suddenly have this sudden interest in knowing more or learn about Japan? You see, I was never a fan of Manga or Anime but yes I do read Manga quite often back in high school (never remembering the names though because majority of them were Shoujo Manga, Crayon ShinChan and Doraemon lol) I didn't watch Japanese dramas (wait does Power Rangers and Ultraman counts?) and only watches a little Anime. It actually started long ago when Kpop wasn't as famous now I brought my first and only Japanese-English dictionary. I read it for a few days, made flash cards but it didn't really last cause I can't use the language itself. Then when Kpop started getting famous, I decided I never did like them after watching a few dramas. I didn't even find Running Man interesting, until now. I do watch some of them but, I just don't get any special feelings from it. Just, neutral. No like, no hate. I kinda like CN-Blue's YongHwa and Tohoshinki's YUNHO though. They're super talented and hot. Haha.

Back to the topic, when I entered University, there's actually this mobilty programme that gave us opportunity to go to foreign country such as Indonesia, Brunei, Germany, Poland and Mexico. But then, I didn't heard about Japan. Then it came to the second semester where I got free time I could sign up for another extra subject to learn, I decided to try German. (WHUT there's no typos there, I first intend to study German because I fell in love with Copenhagen looooooooong ago for being one of the happiest country in the world.) Then the timetable for German classes crashes with my other majors. So I changed to Spanish. OK the night I changed to Spanish my heart was like, very not peaceful. I literally can't sleep and kept feeling that I've made a very wrong decision. So, I get my Laptop, went to the academic online system, dropped Spanish and choose Japanese. YES IT WAS MY THIRD CHOICE. But came to think of it now, I'm glad German's classes crashes my major's schedule, and I can't sleep because I picked Spanish. (I guess I didn't like being normal for choosing Spanish because it's common for people to take Spanish as it's the easiest learning/ widely spoken foreign language other than English)

So maybe in the end I just wanted to learn something that most of the people wouldn't huh. Since you know, I don't wanna learn Korean or it doesn't enticed me that much? Then again the moment I started taking Japanese, I did some homework (very passionately and almost daily) to search about what Japan is like. I even started watching Anime and Japanese Drama, followed vlogs on youtube which tell stories about Japan in the eyes of a foreign! So after all these efforts, surprisingly my interest in Japan has getting more intense lol but no I don't think I'm at the Otaku stage now. Just probably some culture-diverse-curiosity going on but hey! Japan is amazing and very special for me (maybe it's my first time but the feelings growing so yea!) so that's why!

And since I do like learning about cultural differences (as an Anthropology and Sociology student I should right? Lol excuse much ahaha) and being new to Japanese Culture I'd say getting more information about the differences never cease to let me feel like "WOAH, REALLY?" It's like, everything's super duper fresh and unique, in a cute way! (Japan emphasizes CUTE fyi)

Then the next thing is. 六月に東京へ行きます!Hehehehe. Oh and I made a couple of Japanese friends who taught me things about Japan first hand!

OH YAH! And all these beauty bloggers I've followed ever since I own a blog! There's Xiaxue, Cheeserland, Fourfeetnine and QiuQiu. Especially Cheeserland. Her post was everything Japan and they're like those initiators who made me indirectly get in touch with Japan infos almost every day.

So I think I'm gonna stop here for explaining WHY haha. It's getting a little long and boring so yea I think all these blabbery would answer that one short question in bold.
