Flat Sweet Flat

Welcome to my humble abode, shared with 3 other flatmates: Cyn, Phil and Jen

Please remove your shoes unless you enjoy disinfecting floors on your OWN hands and knees after every visit to an Asian household.


Come through to the kitchen, as we do not have an area for visitors to lounge in (otherwise known as the reception/living room) due to our extreme lack of *£ka-ching£*

Do not be fooled by the luxurious look of the shelf and assume we have plenty, for the boxes and tins are empty...

By observing this cupboard, you can predict my dietary consumption for the next year: Cereal, cereal, more cereal, mustard, nutella...and then more cereal.


Next, ve 'ave ze bafroom. As ewe can seee, it iz beeutifooly decorated.




Finally, we have me bedroom. The smallest, warmest, cosiest room in me flat. XD There is a height restriction of 156cm to enter the room.

Me bookshelf of books I must touch

Me dad-made bookshelf of books I never touch

Half-view of me room

Me door-hanger thingy

Thank you for coming. I hope you've had a good time. Now, GET OUT!

"I wills..." follow up

DEC 2009

As I sit here during this ungodly hour, shivering in the bitter cold, my thoughts cannot help but to drift towards what has happened over the year...
  • I entered university
  • I went clubbing for the first time
  • Someone told me that he loved me
  • We went to Paris for the first time
  • I dated, comforted and loved
  • That someone left me shortly after
  • I cycled around London
  • I got my first job and pay check
  • I went to Italy with my parents
  • I bought my first bike
  • I rented my first flat and do chores *gasp*
  • Used to be proud to say I couldn't cook. Now, I'm even more proud to say 'I CAN COOK!'
  • A year ago, I sat with that someone at the audience watching a christmas performance.
  • A year later, I'm on the same stage performing, looking down at the audience and thinking it's okay that he's not there.

  • Eyes may roll up

Yeeup...happens to me everytime I sit through a lecture.

UK vs M'sia 3

RULES IN THE UK THAT WILL NEVER APPLY IN MALAYSIA
No. 3

Ah...the weather...Easily everybody's first choice of topic. However, it's the Briton's favourite topic. Now, why is that?

UK

Cause it's exciting! You'll never know what you're gonna get. You'll wake up to a sunny sky, walk out into the rain in bikinis and lay on a field of grass wishing you hadn't just worn you woolly jumper as it seems that the clouds are gonna clear soon. Over here, your first words to your future spouse may be "Dreadful weather, innit" or "It's such a nice day today". The weatherman is never to be trusted and bbc weather is known as a complete fraud.

Malaysia
You spend one week cursing the hot weather and wishing the whole of your city is trapped in a bubble with permanent air conditioning. Then, you'll experience a breezy, cloudy week trying to ignore the massive thunderstorm cloud forming above your head. Following that, you'll get a week of non-stop rain with deafening thunders and lightning flashes that causes power-outs, causing you to swear at the weather for another week. The whole cycle repeats again, making the weatherman's job fairly easy.

UK vs M'sia 2

RULES IN THE UK THAT WILL NEVER APPLY IN MALAYSIA
No. 2



UK
If you see a zebra crossing, you may cross with confidence that vehicle drivers will NOT run you down. You may even cross without looking both ways and get to the other side quite unharmed.


Malaysia

Zebra crossings apparently are invisible to drivers of any sort. In fact, rules are that human beings MUST stop for vehicles to cross or risk becoming road kill

UK vs M'sia 1

I'm gonna start a new series of blog posts with a centralised theme so I sound professional.

It's about the trivial things I think of when strutting down the pedestrian paths of London on my very lonesome. I shall call this:

RULES IN THE UK THAT WILL NEVER APPLY IN MALAYSIA
No. 1

UK
When raining, seek shelter under a sufficiently large tree. You shall remain reasonably dry.


Malaysia
When raining, avoid trees to prevent getting even MORE drenched by gigantic ping pong sized rain drops. Also, under a tree, you may be struck by lightning.
(Kids are cautioned with this fact since primary school =D)

Or maybe......

明天以后

Saturday, 20 June 2009

Awesome Day!!

I'm sitting here, in the middle of the night although I have to be up and ready by 7am, composing this post just because I don't want to EVER forget this UNFORGETTABLE day...The irony of it. XD

It all started when Minh.......my FAVOURITE (and only) Vietnamese friend said "Hey, let's go watch Transformer 2's premier and meet Optimus Prime!", followed by a hearty "Hey, let's have a tea party tomorrow!!"

So with our advanced Information Technology knowledge, we googled "Tea in London". After carefully agreeing that we in fact are cheap bastards, we decided to book the cheapest seats in Odeon for 5.15pm and have tea in a quaint little place by St. Paul's Cathedral...
...called "Tea Ltd" (Surprise, surprise...The Ritz was our last choice...><) for our afternoon tea. ....And here begins our journey XD

We relied on the most efficient and quickest transport in London, and that is by foot, discovering places we never expect to see...
"A bank...!", we thinks...

"Sainsbury's HQ!!", we thinks...

"Amen Corner"...no doubt
Arriving at Tea Ltd (which took forever to find!), we ordered ourselves
  • 1 pot Silver needle white tea
  • 1 pot Dragon Well green tea
  • 2 Chocolate Fudge Cakes
  • 2 Rocky Roads
  • 4 cucumber and salmon finger sandwiches
  • 2 raisin scones with fluffy butter and strawberry jam
The waitress chuckled as she served our food. After consuming our scones and staring and the chocolate fudge cakes and rocky roads, we came to a mutual understanding as our mind synced to announce "TOO MUCH SUGAR!" What happens next, is too painful to relive. All I can say is that it involves another pot of tea (chamomile) and holding back projectile vomit. Never...again...

We left Tea Ltd and explored the area as we had time before the movie. We were lucky that day as there was a live band performing at the steps of the cathedral (Britain's got talent "Stomp" group, according to Minh) and a tiny children's parade on recycling. On the way to the cinema, we saw this!
Well, it's not the same guy and not the same place (got the picture of the internet), but it was the SAME STUNT!! A knife juggler balancing on a ladder!!

Then, we met Ian and Yeo Ming on the same grounds celebrities tread upon to watch TRANSFORMERS 2: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN!!
I don't know what movie critiques think but me thinks it's one of the awesomenest movies I've sawed since...the last awesomenest movie XD I couldn't even sit back for the whole 2 1/2 hours in the cinema. I reckon it was sugar rush though...

Following that, we went to china town to buy 2 boxes of plain rice...(Obviously, we got weird stares from the waitresses again)...went back to halls, and made Vietnamese Chicken Salad!
"From the internet...again"
We microwaved raw chicken...Yeeup! Marinated it with random stuff overnight, and microwaved it to steaming perfection. Yummeh!

I'll tell ya what love is~

When you've been with someone for too long, (be it siblings, parents, marital partners, close friends), you'll develop the instinct and excessively strong urge to kill him/her.

Oh yeah...that annoying twitch that she does; or the shrilly, naggy voice that he has...the incapability for you to understand why he insists on wiping his bum with Scott's toilet paper rather than Comfort's.

You know you'll feel the instant relief you'd experience if you could just wrap your fingers around their throats and stop that sound coming from their mouths they call talking.

But you know what holds us back? Love... that's right...Love stops us from murdering that person who is forever super-glued to our lives.

If he/she ever asks..."Darling, do you love me?"

Well, if he/she wake up the next morning.....you can dignifyingly say "Well, I do believe I love you enough!"

Future home

Haven't got a bloody clue what to blog about...

Found a totally cool camera application on my laptop though! "I've found my twin!"
"Leazilla says "RAWR!"

Life is just a big mash of uncertainty, for the moment...

1) Where am I suppose to stay during the summer?! I'm gonna be stuck in London, all alone, working in Boot's...(Yippee?).

2) Where am I gonna stay during my second year in uni?! See...this is the kinda place I wanna live in...


Nice big, modern kitchen
Stylish bedroom...Or this one down here is fine too...I'm not picky XP


Clean bathroom...This one is even fit for sharing so one can poop and another can pee at the same time. Saves time, you see.


And of course, a cozy living room...

Why can't I have this basic luxury of having my own domicile?
I'm guessing...not enough whining and tantrums...Mom, Dad!! GIMME!!!!

3) Not sure if I'm gonna past my first year exams...=(
Had an extemporaneous drug making exam yesterday...the experience was like baking poison without any recipes!! I've walked around the lab and took a few pictures....Beware future patients..."Hi there, ma'am...Yes, your Kaolin mixture is almost ready...We're gonna fix your diarrhea right up!"
"Hello, sir! Here's the constipation drug you need. We've even sculpted it in the shape of poopies to encourage your defecation process"

"Valium you say, miss...Why, I make the best...Even tried some myself"

I just realised there's a lot of mention about faecal matter in this post...
