- Amazing Hunt 3 organized by Rotaract Club of Swinburne
- Was there to help? or watch?
- Watching people fishing up coconuts is not so fun
- Bello, my African friend bought me snacks as he heard that I didn't have breakfast nor lunch
- Said a BIG THANK YOU to him. MUST SHOW GRATITUDE. Its nice to have someone caring~ =)
- Walking around every station is fun
- Dropped by Camp Permai
- Edi's idea, KAYAK!
- April, Edi and I kayaked all the way around the edge of the mountain
- Had hoped to find this white sand beach, the person in-charged said
- Didn't find no white sand beach
- Kayaked all the way back, poor Edi kayaked all the way while April and I took turns
- Dan taught Edi to do back-flips
- We washed up, thanks to Henry's shampoo and bath gel
- Pizza hut for dinner!
And this is the far shortest post ever reporting on a day trip. HAhhah!!

April, Ron and Dan... during the amazing hunt.
Dan playing ball...
Edi's idea, KAYAK! Orange looks good no? I should have orange clothes!
Move IT! I want the seat!! YOUR BUTT TOO HUGE! HRMP!
(malu la, I think my butt seriously smaller than his.. or more like a non-existing one! Haha! Only I can laugh! You cannot laugh! Its my butt not yours!)
But in actual fact we were only reading the rules and regulations..
Ooooo, he helped buckle up April's.. ahem ahem
Listening to last minute tips and stuff, see how April straining to listen??

Anyways, after listening to it a few times.. I find that its groovy alright and the lyrics is nice. A bit obscene but no swear words what so ever. It just gives you that sexyyy feeling and you just want to groove along to it.. hahaha! I have put it into my playlist so it will automatically load and you'll be able to listen to it.
And the bad lyrics my sister does not approve of....
She's badder than beautiful ,
Top of her head to her pretty feet.
Her bodys delectable ,
I wanna jump on her bad
but i play it breezy , the desperate man gets the scraps
She sees that im looking at
her, she showing out for me i think im digging that , lil mama
Dont stop doing whatchu do
Girl i just wanna watch you dance..
(and later on ) we go , go do what we do
but now i just wanna watch you dance
Keep it moving...
I love how shes moving it
the way she pops her hips to the beat
like .. (Boom, Boom....Boom Boom )
That's ridiclous ( ridiclous )
i cant belive how hot shes making me
I wanna jump on her bad
but still i play it breezy , the desperate man gets the scraps
She sees that im looking at
her, she showing out for me i think im digging that
Dont stop doing whatchu do
Girl i just wanna watch you dance..
(and later on ) we go , go do what we do
but now i just wanna watch you dance
Keep it moving...
Hope you enjoyed the song~ =)

This is like the second jacket I've lost. The last time I lost my jacket was that I left it in school... That was 5 years ago. I was so sad cause it was my favourite jacket. The jacket I lost now... is my favourite too and it goes with my white dress~ =(
My necklace is missing too. The last I saw was last week and that was it. I never saw it again after that. I rarely took it off unless I'm wearing a different necklace. But since I've been so blur this past few weeks that I just don't know where I left it. All the places that I normally put it, I've checked....
Poor necklace.. its the only silver I can use. Normal silver necklace in Kuching just won't cut it because the silver they sell here is not pure and its mixed with many other stuff so the cost would be cheaper. =( They normally go black on me after 2 weeks. The necklace I had is Perlini's from Singapore. Mum bought it for me. =( I've worn that necklace for almost 5 years now. Guess I will have to be necklace-less for some time. ...

Cancer (Jun 22 - Jul 22)
The Bottom Line
Live in the moment today -- don't worry too much about your future.
It is sometimes challenging for you to live life in the moment -- that is, to live your life as it happens to you, and not get too hung up on thoughts of the future. It's definitely important to remember that your future depends on how you act today, but you shouldn't deprive yourself of spontaneous fun just because you want to play it safe. Planning for your retirement is wise, but there's no point in putting every last penny into a savings account! It's time to focus more on what is going on around you.
*After so many months of not caring about horoscopes, today I suddenly just felt like checking it out and above was what the my horoscope was for the day. It actually does fit with how I'm feeling recently. ==KewL==
Will be back to posting better and interesting stuff. =P

Thanks to prior knowledge of doing an actual business report, I didn't end up a dead zombie in front of my laptop. The reason why I'm thankful for such things called auto recover is because I accidently plugged on my laptop cable really loosely and to make things worse, I took out the battery because I didn't want my battery to have the over-charged syndrome. So when I finally thought I finished everything, I moved the position of my laptop and the whole thing just went DEAD on me.
Imagine the horror! I didn't even managed to save what I had done. My heart just sank~ I was panicking already. Then I re-check the cables and switch on the laptop. Anticipating the worst which is having to re-do the whole assignment again! But when I clicked on the MWord programme, Tada! A window opened up on the left side which said, RECOVER of the previous file. I was so happy, I almost cried!! Hahaha!
I finally printed out everything at 8-ish in the morning and yes, I didn't sleep all night. I was suppose to take a power nap at around 12.30am but I ended up watching the recap of Donald Trump's, The Apprentice. The last two competitors, Lee and Sean of the last season.
I didn't even yawn the whole night while sitting in front of my laptop if I remember correctly. I was so obsessed about finishing it that not once, I left my laptop. Not even to the toilet, just didn't have the urge to go. =P That was how obsessed I was. The only thing accompanying me the whole night was my personal companions, The All American Rejects which the whole album was put on loop. *I think I know all the lyrics by now! Subconsciously, it got to my head!*
Mum didn't kill me for not sleeping at all cause she herself knows how horrible it is when it comes to the due date of an assignment. The most disappointing is how all my effort put into this assignment has to be shared among my group members who barely helped me. I didn't see the point of me letting them see what I have done since they barely even played their part in the whole assignment. Two others didn't even bother to take a look or say thank you. I SPENT NIGHTS ON IT NOT SLEEPING!! YOU NIMCOMPOOPS!
Managed to finish up mum's ink catridge. =( Which I have to replace it by this week. Talk about being broke~~ Some people still have the cheek to come and ask me to have a look at my assignment cause they have not finished theirs!!! Eeeee! Leeches! Parasites!!
Supposedly I am just too tired from not enough sleep and countless hours in front of my trusty laptop, I managed to walk all the way home today. FINALLY! Without someone showing up half way to send me home! Haaha! I walked home unannounced this time since my brother took the car out, there was no point in telling mum. Since I saw no other way of getting some sleep, I just forced myself to walk.
**Kids.... when walking home, do let someone know you are walking home. Because if something happen to you on the way and no one ever knew you were on your way home, your parents would be worried sick!
It was ONE VERY SLOW WALK. I've never actually walked so slow in my whole entire life. People used to complain that I walk too fast. And to top it off, I wasn't wearing my sport shoes because both of it went to the doctor to get some stitchings because it has some serious wounds which I couldn't heal it by myself.
I was so blur that when I finally realized I was on the turning towards my house, I was thinking to myself..... "Ui, I'm here already? I already turn kah??? Huh???" **Turning back and looking around my surroundings** So dangerous!!! Lack of sleep really can kill. I wasn't even paying attention to where I was walking!!! Thank goodness my subconscious led me well!! If not, I would have walked further off on the wrong direction from my house!!
Got home and just drop dead on my
So here I am after a 3 hour power nap... having enough energy to blog in which I must go down to have dinner soon cause I remembered I was feeling too sick to eat during lunch! What a HORRIBLE DAY it has been! My result for one of my midterm test came back today. I expected to get a HD for it which I did managed to BUT it was the lowest HD!!!! Its a barely there HD right at the border!! *sniff* I guess I should be grateful that I managed to get a HD! This is not the end, I'll grind myself more for the finals!! GambaTTE!!
That's all. Now this is what I call a hell of a report on such a non-interesting day! Hahha!! SO MUCH WORDS LA! SORRY!!
It has been maybe one year since I've been to the cinema!! I just realized it!! DAMN!! After this week, I don't care I must make sure I go watch something even if it means going on MY OWN! Despesrate times, calls for desperate measures! =P HAhaha!! Is MR BEAN still on?? I don't even have time to read newspapers anymore!! People say, its boring... but who knows, a LAME-O-CHICK like me will find it FUN! weeee!~~~~~!!!!

I'm sure everyone has friends. If I have them, I'm sure you all have them too. But in my case, friends are case sensitive issues. Growing up... it was not all peaches and green for me, I was never the cool chick in school where everyone wanted to be my friend. I was the outcast. I was the one whom people called the 'Bitch'. There was a point in my life where the only friends I had walked away from me because some other chick said she didn't like me.
That was when it hit me real bad. I was alone for weeks. And then guys became my only friends. Then everything changed for me. I found that I could easily make friends with guys. I find them to be easier to talk to and they don't really bitch behind your back like chicks do. But I have to THANK that particular chick 1 day who managed to screw me up for that few weeks because she made see through beyond the chick world.
I can't THANK her now because she and I, we have this love-hate relationship. We rarely meet and I like it that way. It gives me more freedom and less things for her and her posse to talk about behind my back. Until she and her posse are done stabbing me from the back, I'll THANK her sincerely. (which means they are still at it, haha!)
Now, friends is something very important to me after my family and GOD. I remembered a post I wrote in the year 2005 with the title, You Know Its Bad When.... At that point in my life, I know that friends was something really hard for me to grasp the gizz of it as I have just been taken for a ride one too many times.
For me to be able to call someone my best friend is something really important to me cause I have trust issues with people. The chicks whom I used to trust totally screwed me up and after years of being called a Bitch, it took some time getting used to and now I'm as immune to it as metholated ointments on my muscles.
I remembered 2 years ago when the first aid members in St Joseph was giving me a lecture on my over dosage of metholated ointments. They practically burnt my muscles with 5 different type of ointments up to the point where they felt burning sensation in between their fingers while I'm not feeling any burning sensation at all. Which kinda sucked~ Cause I loved the burning sensation a lot and it helps to de-stress the muscles. Now they work just like lotion to me! Hrm....
I used to think that maybe its just how I am that chicks don't like me. My attitude, character, personality to be exact or just how I carry myself. It took me ages and a lot of people giving me advice to get past that phase. Some good advice which I grew up with are:-
- If people don't like you for who you are, they don't mean anything to you.
- You don't need people's approval to be what you want to be.
- You don't have to change yourself in order for people to like you especially when there is nothing wrong with you.
- You can always just find people who like you for who you are and wanna be your friend.
- Ditch your bitchy friends and find new ones. You'll just rot if you stay with them.
- As they say, "Misery loves company"
Be careful of those who bask in their misery cause they will only bring you down with them. I realized just recently that the ROOT OF ALL EVIL to BITCHINESS is not that far to find. She is sooooo closeeeeee by that I didn't realize it until her true form showed itself.
Her black heart is cold and bitter that I can't even sympathize for her because she is giving me hell. Her black heart consumes her mind and her mouth does her bidding. Those who believes in her are only but her pawns and swimming in her misery. Beware of the Devil In Skirts! =P
On a lighter note, that is why I never believe in malicious gossips. In high school I know people say things behind my back which are not true and when some people come up to you and say, "Hey, they said you are .. so and so.. but I find that it is totally untrue because you are not what they say you to be."
In a way, it is compliment but a painful compliment as you know people are saying things which are not true about you and for this person to come to you and let you know, you feel thankful but painful at the same time.
But I am happy to report that I have a pair of best friends whom I trust and believe in. A male and female, a good balance, yea? They are always there to hear me out and do not have any pre-assumptions of me. They take me as I am and they are not too quick to judge me from my problems. I love the fact that I can share everything with them without fearing that they will not like me. I love them to their guts!
*Names are not disclosed here as I do not want the people who do not like me to do the same to them. You are not what your friends are, remember that!
So if you have not have a best friend whom you can solely trust, you should find one cause when you do, you'll be so thankful you have them! =)
Phew.. that was a long post~ I should write for a newspaper or magazine column, don't you think? =P Hahaha!

When I was younger say 13-14 years old, I was totally loving BLINK 182. That time it was the cassette tape era and they cost a whopping RM18.90 each!! Those dudes were like my personal companions 24/7. They stuck with me through thick and thin. I was obsessed with them for many months. I didn't get bored which was totally amazing cause now I get bored damn easily with songs.
Now THE ALL AMERICAN REJECTS are my personal companions. I don't know how long they will last but their lyrics are really STRONG and when you really pull your ear to REALLY LISTEN to the words, you can feel the song! 1 song totally made me feel bad inside. It made me feel like I had a BIG black hole in my heart and its sucking every single feelings into it. I just couldn't control. I found myself crying to the song for a good 3 minutes and 38 seconds.
Then I thought, "Hey, I should check out other songs by them!" I've heard of "It Ends Tonight" but that song didn't hit me to my guts like the current one. As I started listening to their past songs, they reminded me a lot of BLINK 182 like "Girl of My Dreams" and "Stab My Back" which even the lyrics, I can apply so much to how I feel! But their latest album is more to the emotional side which is good for days you feel like you have just fell from a very high place.
I seriously recommend THE ALL AMERICAN REJECTS if you were a pure fan of BLINK 182. It takes some time to get use to their style but its WORTH IT. So if you see me anywhere and I'm looking oblivious to my surroundings, most lightly I'm listening to my mp3 to my current personal companions rocking my days. =P What can I say? Music is just my life. If you take away music from me, I'll be a walking zombie and look like I'm totally lost in life.

Since our first choice, Tom's was closed... ON A SUNDAY NIGHT... We thought we'd try our luck at Jambu Restaurant & Lounge. Upon arriving, very few cars were insight. The interior of the place looks nice and cosy. On the stereo, they were playing really nice jazz music to fit the ambience of the place.
The Living Room
The pretty counter with lots of name cards~
The Name Card~
The duckies~~ =P
The Dining Area~
Anticipating the smoked salmon salad!
The timing for the main course was just perfect. As we finished our salad, the steaks came. Its called The White Rajah Favorite which is grilled New Zealand Sirloin Steak served with potato russet. I chose the Red Wine sauce while Dr. Clem chose the Mushroom sauce. We both asked for the steak to be cook medium rare and the tenderness of the steak was impeccable. Just sinking your teeth into the juiciness of the meat! *Lick lips....*
After finishing our main course, we decided to get dessert. Something light, just ice cream with strawberry and mango coulis. While waiting, we went around the whole place exploring and snapping pictures. The waiter and waitress were real sports. They even turned on all the lights in the private rooms for me to take pictures. =P Woops, me so kepo hor??! Haha! They must be taking this sakai people.. Hai~ *sweat sweat*
Private Room with tonnes of wine bottles decoration~!
Private Room - Homey Looking Interior~
Expensive PaintingS~! Some cost up to RM100,000!!
The Bar around the back~
Outdoor Smoking Area with a huge projector screen for football seasons??!!
Dr. Clem & I after the great meals~!

What do you think of it?? =P Hehe! I didn't actually have a reason to change my header. There was a picture of me but somehow I just didn't like my face but I realized I liked the eyes! I know I have a love-hate relationship with myself!!! =P So I cut out my eyes and was thinking what I can do with it. Then it occured to me, it would be great for my blog header! A little bit of tweaking here and there and additional picture of the butterfly with my 'One Voice' blog name. Tada!

WHAT DO REALLY YOU WANT? Is there something that you know, YOU WANT but at the same time you know, YOU CAN'T HAVE? Is it just the THRILL or the THOUGHT of getting IT that keeps you HOOKED?
Has it ever occured to you that whenever you want something, you go to great lengths just to get it?? That RIGHT or WRONG isn't that important anymore?? But somehow yet you know, that every single thing surrounding it points to the direction that you should NOT want it? That you would probably be better off without it??
But somehow you wonder... and think... "But, what if... just what if... I had the chance of having it.... having it all to myself?"
With that hope in mind, every single thing surrounding it, all the things which points away from it.... is just suddenly gone. Somehow those things becomes such minor details that you are sure you can get through it.
Like they always, sometimes you just have to take the risk. Wouldn't that only make you vulnerable since all defenses are down in pursuit of it?? When you thought that you had everything in life a normal person would want; that everything was fine and good; that you saw no flaw; you were contented with what you have but somehow someone comes along and show you that you deserve better and that you should not be contented with just what you have.
How will we ever know when to be contented? How do we know what we actually deserve?? And you know how vulnerable or how transparent you feel when someone who doesn't know you well, comes along and tells you a sentence regarding what they observe about you. Something you thought, only you would know that you thought you had under control. You thought that you masked it well. You didn't think anyone could see. You hid it and pretend its not there.
It hurts when someone else tells you. It hurts only because it is true. The fact that it is true and that you have been masking it for years but someone within a few days of observing realised what you are masking comes and tell you of the observation. How would you react? Surprised? Sad? Or happy since someone finally understands you? Angry since someone know of it? Upset? Or mix feelings of everything???
Anyways, I'm side-tracking here... >>>>>>
But what do you actually want? Is it necessary to have what you want? Is it a must? Will it make you go crazy if you don't have it? Don't you feel that in the end, it becomes your drug? You feel that you must have it, it becomes an addiction. An addiction to have it....
Has any of you felt this way before???

Everything is almost manual! Canons are easy.. Canons were made for Beginners. I guess Olympus is for Intermediate users. I am still considered a Beginner... I know the basic to using DSLRs and set it for the best lighting quality on manual mode but Olympus is crazy!~! Can get heart attack~ Haaha! I've been trying to figure it out for the last 2 days and yet still can't get the gizz of it! With the Canon, I managed to understand it within a few hours!
I mean like sure sometimes when I hit all the right settings, the pictures come out good but I can screw up real bad when all the settings are wrecked! Talk about handling a DSLR. Olympus E-500 comes with twin lenses which you can switch depending on what kind of zoom ability you want. Fun!
I guess I will have to spend more time on it to understand this baby~
Snapping pictures, here I come!!

Studies is like the number 1 to drop. It only goes up when play and work goes down. If either work or play goes up, studies will go down. So balance of the Ying and Yang is important. I don't work well with last minute plans anymore. Since my schedule is quite tight and routine-like... its pretty tough to just be spontaneous nowadays.
I'm glad eventhough with so much distraction I am still able to keep up with the chapters. Though I am getting a lot more distracted in class lately. Its so hard for me to just focus...... After this one week break, I should get back to 100% focus.
Assignments, presentations, mid-terms... these are giving me headaches. The presentation last week almost gave me a heart attack with so many things going all wrong but in the end, everything went well and our lecturer didn't say anything about our presentation so I presume that we hit all points required since normally she would point out mistakes in points while with other groups. So, lucky us!~!
I'm super tired now with an aching back, I'm guessing probably from the 3-inch heels and arching back the whole afternoon. I'll go into more details on that probably in my next few posts. Will not be posting much as I'm busy busy juggling everything! =P So do miss me? Or do not miss me??!! Which ever you choose.... HAha~ Bye!

We only seriously took off for Damai at 5.30pm. Traffic was being very 'kind'. So it was 7 of us squeezing in a car. With Dan driving, Sam in front... Dave, Laura, April, Edi and I were at the back. We finally arrived at 6.30pm and checked-in. Got a chalet room at an awesome rate! =P Anyone who wants good rates for hotels should look for me. I've got good connections. =P Haha!
Anyways, we went to the beach for a bit and managed to catch the sun-down. For dinner, we went to Beach Seafood. They served our dishes in like speed record time.
We had Baby Kailan in Oyster Sauce, Black Pepper Beef, Lemon Chicken, Lemon Fillet Fish, Japanese Beancurd with Sea Cucumber, Butter Prawns and Cangkuk Manis. The butter prawns were huge and I didn't dare to even try one! =( Black Pepper Beef was full on superlicious~ It was the 2nd dish but the 1st to finish.
After dinner, we went around Buntal in search for Peanut Butter but we ended up with kaya, mineral water and chup-chup lollies. Once we got back to the chalet, Dan and Sam was busy mixing the punch.
Them mixing the killer punch~
All ready and equip to party~ =)
We managed to catch 'So You Think You Can Dance' on 8tv and we were making fun and some of us tried to dance too and show what talent we've got! =P We also caught a bit of Little Mermaid before heading out to the bar at the lobby. It was 11.40-ish and the place closes at midnight. They had a Hawaian style band. They are not bad. We were trying to dance to the songs. Haha~!
Small world, we bumped into Bryan, Owen, Ann, Bertran and an ang moh chick. Didn't manage to get her name. She didn't seem so friendly. Even me scared!! Anyways, Edi knew Bryan and within seconds it was, "Come to our place at 413. We've got booze" and then Bryan was like, "Yea, we got booze too, we'll meet you guys at your place".
Sam, Dan and Dave each ordered a drink and they took some time to finish it. By the time we got to our place, no one was waiting. Hahah~ The boys started the HUNT FOR BRYAN & OWEN. They came back announcing that the group were playing monopoly.
Apparently, we were a bit too loud that a security guard came over and told us to be less noisy. So everytime someone was getting loud, we'd be like.. "ssshhhsshh" Haha! =P So we moved the scene to 519. We brought our punch and we crashed their chalet. Sure enough, they were just playing monopoly.
We were a bit too noisy, I think. It was hilarious. Sam, Edi, Dan were like dissing Dave and we were just laughing our hearts out. From time to time, we talked to the monopoly group. Or maybe shout?? Cause everyone was talking so loud...
It was low tide at 1am. It was the first time I walked so far down the beach. I remembered saying, "Mum says......" and Edi was like.. "Haiya!..." Can't remember details. Sorry, I think it was due to the punch. We met Bertran & Ann and Bertran was telling us that Dave was totally wasted. So Edi and I went to check em' out.
Sure enough, Dave was down on the grass face-down. Leaves, flowers, rocks were all around him and they were taking pictures of him. It was funny at one point but I pitied him at one point too. So after they had fun, I brushed off everything from his back and the guys carried Dave in. Kids, never mix your alcohol even Bertran said he had to puke at the wee hours. They all drank vodkas with beers. To mix your alcohol or drink with an empty stomach is asking for only trouble!
Had my everyday night supper, instant noodles and then went to bed. By then it was I think, around 4.30am. Then around 5.30am, I heard Edi going out. So I accompanied him outside eating a bread. I think I was having gastric but after eating the bread, my tummy felt better. Goodness, I eat a lot but I just don't seem to put on weight!! Hrmp!! No fair!!
Around 6.30-ish, it started to rain. Talk about wanting to catch the sunrise. Haha! Didn't see none of it. It seems I never make it to see the sunrise. Hahaha! Edi and I finally woke up at 11.30-ish and decided to go out to the beach.
So clever~ I didn't put sun block since the sun wasn't scorching hot which as a result I got pretty burns on my shoulders! =( *sniff sniff* We started collecting small shells, crawly stuff.. that reminds me.. its still in my bag! We put em into a bottle and stuck it into the sand before heading off to deeper waters. Mum always said.. "Don't go deep" and I've never actually go so far down the beach. But it was nice. =)
We got back to the chalet at 12.30pm and everyone else was finally awake. We checked out at 1.30pm and drove back. Still 7 in one car. Amazingly squeezing ourselves in. We all went back to the hostel to visit Luca and showed him pictures. Poor, Luca didn't want to go with us and have fun. =(
April and I~
Freaky smile~ =P wwooppss?
