Prince's 21st Birthday

Prince birthday was last week, on the 12th of July to be precise. We, the housemates and 2 additional guests (Hua and Eric) had a small and simple celebration for him. Due to my busy schedule, I only managed to edit and upload the video we took now.

This was Prince's birthday present from Guat Shan and I. Not an expensive branded shirt or a hand-sewn shirt from us, but we got this for him because it's so significant to him, at least in our point of view when we saw this piece of shirt :)

Hope you enjoyed our little celebration, Prince!

Like every sem, it's once again, my busy week.

Only difference between this sem and last sem is that last sem, my busy schedule was thoroughly distributed from week 4 to week 12 but this sem, my busy schedule is packed into 3 weeks.

I have like 3 tests in a week and 5 tests in 2 weeks. This excludes assignments, reports and presentations. These are the times where it feels like, you know, you've worn a really uncomfortable pair of shoe out for a whole day shopping, and you can't wait to get home to take your shoes off and relax your overly strained feet. If you get what I mean ;) These are the times where I can't wait to go on a relaxing trip with my friends!!

It's already week 8! Time really flies on Boeing 787! XD

Edit : One of my test (Phytochem) has been postponed! I'm soooo happy!! :D

Bon Odori 2010.. Off.

Today is the 34th Bon Odori in Malaysia. The last time I went to Bon Odori was 4 years ago in 2006.

30th Bon Odori, 15th July 2006.

I think many already know that Bon Odori is a Japanese Ghost Festival and every year, there would be a festival held in 2 places in Malaysia, which are the Matsushita Stadium in Shah Alam and Esplanade in Penang, to celebrate this event.

I've never been to the one in Penang and since I enter my uni life, I made a some sort of 'promise plan' to myself that I would go to Bon Odori in Penang while I'm in my uni life. I made this self-promise back when I was in foundation, almost 4 years ago.

My favourite Bon Odori fan.

There are many self-promised plans I made and for most of them, I managed to fulfill, if not contented with what I did. But for this Bon Odori Penang plan, it is otherwise. 

Ever since I made this self-promised plan for Bon Odori...

31st Bon Odori 2007 - I was in foundation and I remember clearly I had my Economics test on the same day.
32nd Bon Odori 2008 - I was in my first year degree and I have no 'kaki' to go with.
33rd Bon Odori 2009 -  I was in my second year degree and I attended Manchester United Asia Tour 2009
34th Bon Odori 2010 - This year.. :(

Reason for missing Bon Odori 2009.. but did not regret :D

This year I have the group of friends I want to go with, I have my housemate who wants to go as much as I do. I might have the time and there was even an initial plan but.. I did not go after all. Why?

* I have 3 tests on the following week and though I might have the time to finish studying and actually attend Bon Odori, the guilt is there.
* We might not have enough transport to get there.
* Guat Shan have a paper on Monday.
* EE have test today and will be tired (burning midnight oil the night before) if we go later and especially more tired for those who will be driving.

I even got my mom to send me my yukata from home.

It's already my final year as a university student and yes, I know many told me that I can attend next year and that Bon Odori will still be there and all but this is my self-made promise and attending next year is not the same anymore. It's no longer under my uni life plan. Every year I tell myself, "It's okay, I'll go next year", and heck, I can't tell myself this anymore this year.

As exaggerated as I may sound, things will not be this bad once it's over ;)

Hopeful Oranje

For World Cup 2010...


I'm a Holland supporter since Euro 2004 and I'm so proud to see my team in the finals this World Cup. Although I predicted that Holland will go against Germany (my second team) in the finals, I'm sure Spain will show us an equally exciting match, ending with the Oranje Lion's victory of course! Lol.

Keeping my fingers.. and toes crossed!

It's the time that I do not like the most- making decisions. Major decisions.

Okay, fine. Maybe not that major but having 6 empty columns to fill my choices for my final year project isn't an easy task for me. I have to admit being unable to make decision and being indecisive is one of my biggest weaknesses. I have always find it so difficult to make decisions. Perhaps I just consider too much while making a decision. Like for my FYP, I would consider things like,

Is the project fun? Will I enjoy doing it?
Is the project long or short? Will I have enough time to finish it?
Am I good at the techniques required for the project?
Do I choose between something I like, or something that will look nice in my resume next time?
Should I choose between grade or learning something new?
What can write for my thesis? Are the sufficient resources/information for me to write my thesis?
Who is the lecturer handling the project?

And on, and on...

Deadline to submit the form is this week and I've picked my top 6 but have not arranged them in order. Even if I arrange my 6 according to my priority, I might not get what I actually want because there are like tens of students competing for the same project title as me? I don't know, maybe I should just arrange the 6 in alphabetical order and just see which one I get. Lol.

Many of you might already know that the connection over here in my Kampar house is terribly bad. Out of 48 hours, I, or rather, we could only get connected and go online for like 15 minutes or 20 minutes at most. Yea, that was how bad was. Was because just a couple of hours ago, Sardin came over to my place and brought his modem/router along. He replaced (yes, replace.. with no charges!) ours with his and ta-da! We could online smoothly now. THANKS SO MUCH, SARDIN!!! :D :D
