She's is coming back to Perth
Saturday. 11.4.06 10:11am
My dear 3rd cousin is coming back to Perth today only for a short 1 week visit. I spoke to her over the phone the other day for an hour and just caught up on what has been happening. I miss this girl very much and have always told her I would fly my butt back to M'sia to see her there at Chinese New Year but I never seem to fufill my promise. It has been 3 years since she has come to Perth, and I have not gone back. I'm looking forward to Dec, when I do return to KL my birth town and hang out with her. It isn't the same when you go as a kid, you kinda do all the family things and not really enjoy the city and the entertainment round town.

Anyways, I will be picking her up today at 1pm, and she doesnt know, becuz her plan was to surprise me. But I kinda found out through my bf hehe cuz he was gonna pick her up...now I shall tag along and surprise her instead! :) My fear is that I hope we havent grown apart, and that I havent changed. I feel that I have grown up a lot over the years and may not be the same person she knew me back then. But doesnt matter, even if we have both changed I know we will be close because she is practically family.

I hope I can take her around as much as I can, because the last trip she was kinda stuck at my house cuz of the wet weather. Funny how the clouds are rolling in once again... *sigh* Also I have my exams in another week and have yet to study properly...hmmm... then it will be the trip! OMG I cant believe it is almost here, I can feel the worry in my mother's voice becuz this will be the first trip I fly without my family but with my friends. Hhaha and I am already 22! I guess I will always be a little girl to my mother, she always hopes I never grow up. :p If I was to travel alone, I think she would seriously freak!

Anyways, here's to the weekend! Hope all u ppls having fun plans and enjoy yaselves. ;)

I have become an ebay seller. Yay! I have wanted to do this for a while, just to sell off my junk and make some extra cash but never really got around to it. I'm most likely to buy than to sell. hehe. Im getting into these online auctions. Even at www.bidz.com that sells jewellery at low prices is a good place to shop. I hardly ever go to the shops anymore, either at home, uni, work or out at cafe with friends. :p

It's like meeting the in-laws...but worse!
Saturday. 10.28.06 10:15am
Last night I was invited to a dinner to meet the parents of my best friend Yohana. It was even worse than meeting Fernando's parents becuz I knew how they would be like, and they are not from Australia and not as laid back. They came from Indonesia for 4 days and then they will fly back to Jakarta. Yohana's parents are well respected, business people of the business world in Indo, they seem like very proper and dressed neatly. When I came into the apartment to meet them, they stood up and said hello and shook my hand. I couldnt remember how tightly my grasp was, but it sure wasnt too strong.

It was a hot day in Perth, but it felt even hotter in the apartment, even though the aircon was prob on. I was sweating on my forehead and I could tell my voice was a bit nervous. It was funny cuz once I walked in, they stared me up and down with the scanning eyes to see whether I was a good friend of their daughter. It felt weird... it wasnt like this with F's mum.

I have heard from other friends that Yohana's mum is scary, but she wasnt. She may have appeared the mother type, strict and rarely smiled. But I could tell in her laugh and her warm towards her daughter that she is a lovely lady. She didnt really speak much to me, but when she did she would question me about important general questions. Which wasnt hard to reply. Her mother said that I was one of the few friends that actually had the guts and the want to meet her. lol!

We had dinner at a casual pizza place in Northbridge. Yo and I sat on one side of the table and the parents on the other. She was introducing me for the first time so I had to keep my manners, and wondered to use a fork and knife with my slice of pizza or go for the hands. :p It really was a situation of giving the best first impression to her parents. Anyways after we left them to go shopping, whilst we got some bubble tea, Yo was also craving her ciggies, so we sat at a cafe so she could smoke...her parents smoke yet they dont want her to smoke..it is very hypocritical. Oh well...I guess parents will always wants what is best for you...and hope you dont make the same mistakes they did.

But all in all, it was a cruisey night, just besides the perspiration and consciousness of manners etc. Usually I am good with parents and I guess I still kinda have it. ;)

assignments down - exams to go...
Tuesday. 10.24.06 4:43 pm
I'm so glad yesterday was the last day of the year I would have to hand in my assignment. I had left 2 essays up to the last minute to finish, exactly a day before I had only begun typing. I felt so stressed! But I knew it was all my fault for putting myself under this pressure. I do it all the time, even though I begin my research early I always leave it the night before to type it out. I guess it never really hits me when the deadline is...

It was funny, cuz I had only slept 4 hours on Monday and had to come to uni to finish it off with my group members. One of the girls did not get her part ready to compile it and I just turned into a nazi, they could feel the stress coming out of my mouth! Even though they didnt sleep much either, they did not have 2 assignments due in the same day! So I had to type at least 5000 words over nite which is a big accomplishment.

I probably wont get the best marks for my final struggle, but I just hope I pass. I looked like a zombie by the end of the day, but a happy zombie :) I went with my best friends to go shopping to relieve the stress and it worked, laughed till I cried. :) Then relaxed to an evening of Grey's Anatomy *sigh*

Exams are in about 2 weeks time, Im not fussed at this point. Just taking it easy and studies will come later ;p It is just me procrastinating once again...oooo Im gonna pay big time!!!! Wish me luck!

the anticipation..
Wednesday. 10.18.06 6:45pm
Despite the 4000 word x 2 essays I have to complete by Monday and the exams around the corner I am forgetting my stressors and thinking ahead to my trip. It isnt right to be thinking about it now cuz it is such a distraction!!! I was only given a reality check this afternoon when I got with my small biz group members and realised we only have 5 days to put our assignment together. The research has been done, but my lecturer is questioning us about the viability of the business, she doesnt do this to other groups but only my group! It's not fair...cuz that means we have to come up with more proof to make our biz look like it can run in a real life market. hmmmm... we were the only group who didnt meet the distinction grade, DAMN!

I dont have any other dramas. I have kinda ignored my other group mate, the guy who was chasing me and only speak to him about work. I just dont think it will get the idea until I really get mean, mean for me is the cold shoulder..some people dont like to received the cold shoulder for me cuz it means I am annoyed and can live without talking to that person again. I know it sounds bad, but that's how I react to people. In a way, I have that attitude that I dont need anyone, well as much as they need me...how self-centred does that sound?

I having being trying hard to care less, becuz I have learnt caring at all...can make you very hurt and disappointed in the end. I am concentrating on my goals atm...and not allowing negative people to get to me. Been cooking heaps, made some oatmeal cookies today - a stress-buster task hehehe. Plus bought a beautiful art folder of 100 pgs of bright, white cartridge paper, ready to draw on! Cant wait till end of exams so I can start designing again and building my portfolio.

Hope everyone else is having a good time living life to the full. ;) Thanks for dropping by!

It feels like a while since I have been typing in my nutang..just been so bz with my uni work and other work, havent really been online. There hasnt been much drama happening..which is always a good sign, but it is coming to the end of semester and things are starting to pick up and my stress levels are reaching a little bit higher. I have a presentation this week, and a major assignment due every week til exams. The hype for the world trip is at the back of my mind and my excitement is slowly creeping up on the scale too.

I spent a lovely day today in Perth city with my bf, just walking around at the art shops and comic book shops to take a look. It really gave us both inspirations to draw and continue with our art. We also had lunch and I did a bit of shopping which is much needed during these times of stress. It was such a good day, but came back really tired cuz of the weather is warming up. Thank God Summer is almost here! Yes, TO THE BEACH! Also I'm starting to see Christmas things being displayed in Myers...gives me a nice warm, fuzzy feeling. :)

I think I will miss him lots when I go overseas with my girls...what am I to do? Being the only taken one. These girls have no committment and have the freedom to do pretty much anything they want. Haha one has planned to go bungy jumping...Im still thinking about it. Thinking of NOT doing it! LOL! But I'm glad that my bf will not miss me as much cuz when Im away he will have the new Nintendo Wii released in Australia. It will keep him happy and his mind off where I'll be. Even though he is having an affair with his console...I have finally accepted it will always be a part of his life and his 2nd gf. hehe...hmmm...maybe not...boys will be boys..
