Oh God..

Dear blog,

a terrible news has come to my knowing. Apparently, my cousins(step-cousins actually) were involved in an accident and one of them died on the spot. I'm not really sure how the story goes, but according to my friend, who is a friend of my cousins, the car in which my cousins were driving fell into a ravine. They say that my cousin who was driving was trying to do the drift stunt as his car was a sport-car. With all those NOS and its horse power, it's no wonder why one would try to do such a thing. Anyways, it is a SHOCKING news. A VERY SHOCKING news. I'm in loss of words now actually. I really dunno how to say it. It's too shoking. I pity his family. He left his mother and a younger brother so suddenly. And not forgetting his girlfriend, which I happen to know as well. They seem to be going steady and serious... I just cannot imagine the impact this would do to his girlfriend and family. Even I, who is not that close to him is very shocked.

This incident makes me feel unsafe and a bit paranoid. I'm really wishing that I'm at home right now. I wouldn't wanna leave my family because if anythin bad happen to them I might be of some kind of help. How can I not be a bit paranoid? First, there was Joycelyn, a friend of mine, who died only recently due to an unknown cause(her body was found floating faced down at a mangrove swamp) and now my cousin??? what is this? Please God, stop this death rows...maybe there's a reason as to why these things are happening. Maybe it's because we are moving away from God each day and that makes Him sad. huhuh... You'll never know when you've gotta go. Who knows? Maybe I could be next tomorrow?? palis-palis(same as touch wood in kadazan).

God please look after my family, friends and them to death, more than myself. Please O God... I pomise to try to be good.

Whatever it is...I pray that may my cousin's soul rest in peace and may You bring comfort to his grieving family and friends...I ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

Well blog, my english presentation has finally ended. Although the burden is off, the thought that I screwed up my presentation kinda disturbs me. But doesn't matter. All I have to think about now is my final exam, which is about another 12 days more. Didn't get to fully concentrate on my studies lately due to the frequent sumazau practices for my friend's presentation. She asked Lat and I to teach and support them in the sumazau dance as their presentation was about the Kadazan people. The presentation was yesterday and the next day(which is today) would be my english presentation. Did that as well, and now, my physics test 2 is gonna be on this saturday. And dammit, I'm not prepared for it. Anyway, I hope I'll be doing just fine...just have to study more and pray to God harder. hahah..

Ok, I'll just stop here... gotta get ready for church tonight. With that said, byebye.

p.s: The bald guy's presentation just now was amusing! It was that amusing until the lecturer saved their presentation in her pendrive. huhuh..

May You Be Blessed

Dear blog,

it's been raining for quite some time now. Actually it's been raining since last night right until this minute. The rain never seem to cease down which resulted the very cold weather. I didn't go to two of my classes because of the rain. Ok, that sounded more of an excuse and I'm not gonna defend myself on that ehehe.

I'm taking a break from studying now and decided to go on the net to check a few things(friendster, myspace, emails). Well I just checked my inbox and there was this forwarded email with the subject "Too lovely not to forward!". The email was about this link. So, I clicked the link and there was this clip about blessing. It was a lovely clip indeed; nice and comforting. Just what I need to read on this cold and dreaded weather. With that, I'd like to share the link with you who are reading this now. Just click on this:

We Send You Our Blessings

and voila!
enjoy the clip...
may you be blessed...

Cloud 9

Yes my dear blog, the title says it all...
I am indeed in Cloud 9 now...
somebody please get me back to the ground..
hahahahahaha..(nah..high summore..wahaha)

ok ok, it was during my last class of the day that made me go up to cloud 9...
He didn't come to class since morning, and yes I admit, I did try to look for him..
with my ever-searching eyes, I search for something round and shiny among all the blacks and browns...yes, he's bald. hahaha..
Anyways, towards the end of the day, he finally came for the last class of the day.
He sat at the very last row and I somewhere in the middle.
Then, when I was busy catching up with the lecturer's speed-teaching, Andrew called my name from the back and as I turned around, he gave me an envelope.
Didn't open it instantly, some delays of doing the exercises given by the lecturer.
After that was done, I opened the envelope and found a Christmas card in it.
It was from "him", the bald guy. My heart skipped a beat and boy was I in a good mood the whole time after that. hahahahaha... how I wish he had written more than what he'd written in that card, but heck, it was great enough that he gave me a card, right? hehe.

I couldn't stop smiling. I tried to control the excessive smiling, afraid that it would look too obvious, but with little success. hehe.
oh, and forgot to mention this, when I got the card, I turned back to thank him but he was "busy" searching something in his bag, thus my thank you was delayed.... but what actually caught my eyes was that, I thought I saw him blushing. Well, I'm not so sure 'bout that though, but since he has fair skin, it would not be hard to notice if he blushes. hehe. Later on, after class finished, I finally got to thank him, but only from a distance..would like to thank him face to face in a much closer distance though. hehehe.

And yes until now...I'm still in cloud 9. I wonder if I should buy him a card also? hmm... but the problem is, I don't really have the money now..haha. I'm really out of money at the moment. like REALLY. I told Lat and Chris bout this. Lat couldn't stop teasing me as I was all smiles througout the day and Chris called me up as soon as I text messaged her. She was so eager to listen to my full story... and she was really happy for me. I'm glad she called. Miss her so much.

*sigh* cloud 9.
This is not healthy.
Have to stop.

It'd be great if he feels the same way as I do. hohoho..merry xmas~

p.s: The timestamp format is finally rectified. No more incorrect timestamp.

Bloody Day

Dear blog,

for starters, I woke up late for church this morning and missed the confession session. Nevertheless, we(Lat and I) still proceeded to church despite being late(my mother would be so proud of me if she knew this, considering the fact that I'm the most lazy one in the family to go to church back home in KK ;p). Anyhoo, we reached church at around 10.40++ AM(church starts at 10.30) and when we entered the church, I planned to just stand along with the late-comers at the back but then this aunty, or one of the church-people there, led or more like, insisted to help us find a seat. OK nevermind, she was just trying to help us, I thought. So, we followed her from the back...passing the back rows...middle rows...and finally, the FRONT rows. Dammit. There we sat, 2nd row from the front. It was kinda embarassing to passed all of the people at the back since we came in late. So, to go all the way to the front was like to let all the people in the church and not to mention, the PRIEST, know that we came in late. However, I kept cool. haha.

After church, Mel met up with us and we went to lunch together at this watsitsname restaurant where we ate one of the most delicious sasau(or pork cooked in red with sweet sauce..yummy!) I've ever eaten..well it's not actually called "sasau", that's just what we, the non-chinese-speaker call it. It's actually "char siew" or "char sau"..hmmm... I guess. Not sure. Go ask your chinese friends. hehe. Ok, after lunch, I initially planned to head straight back home since I didn't have any money and there were still loads more study to catch up with(finals is like in another 2 more weeks) but Mel wanted to go shopping at Mahkota Parade for awhile so she asked us to accompany her. Reluctantly, I tagged along... well, I didn't show it to her that I was reluctant to go. I just kept my cool, as usual. muehehe..

It was drizzling at that time and luckily I was wearing black shirt. From lunch, we walked all the way to MP but we had to stop at Dataran Pahlawan(opposite MP) first because the rain was getting heavier. We browsed around DP while waiting for the rain to stop and Mel bought some new clothes during the browsing activity. As for me, I just window-shopped. hehe. No money bahh...then we went browsing around again and we even managed to donate some money to this Salvation Army foundation I think. Not sure what it was for actually but the cute little girl who asked for donations from us won our hearts. haha. After that, we decided to just go to MP although it was still raining.

Reached MP, and there were so many people there, shopping for Christmas I figured. Without wasting time, Mel went on her shopping spree. At the moment, I can't really recall what were the things she bought but all I remember was that she finally bought the red stillettos she's been wanting since last week. They looked nice on her by the way. Then we went browsing around more and Lat and Mel bought some things along the way. Oh, I bought 2 Christmas cards myself. hehe.

Then Mel took me and Lat for a drink(it was on her as a favour of accompanying her). Lat went to the loo and didn't come back for quite some time until we thought she was lost finding the toilet. Just when we were about to worry about her, suddenly she came back and enthusiastically told us about this blood donation campaign she saw on her way back from the toilet. She managed to talk us into donating our bloods including Mel, who seemed VERY reluctant due to her fear for needles. haha. Went there, filled in a form and a card, and get our blood donated. I would be lying if I said that I wasn't nervous(it was my first time) but I managed to keep my cool, as usual. But Mel, she was freaking out man... it was very amusing watching her, even the staff there also seemed amused by Mel's reactions. Anyhow, after the blood donation, we were treated for a drink and a sausage bun so as to gain some energy. Oh and btw, Lat was so frustrated because she didn't get to donate her blood due to her asthma and plus, her menses just ended only recently. I do pity her because she was the one who was so eager to do the blood donation in the 1st place. Both Mel and I felt a bit weak after donating our blood, but it's normal they say, so I just leave it be. After that, we finally headed back home and we only reached EP at around 6pm or so. Not sure. I was exhausted and the rain wasn't really helping. A day I initally planned to be a simple day turned out to be quite a long and tiring day. But I'm not complaining because if it wasn't for Mel asking us to accompany her to go shopping, I wouldn't have gotten the chance to donate my blood, which I had been wanting to do for a long time. There's always something behind everything. hihi. They say that there'll be another blood donation campaign in Feb next year at MMU...can't wait! OK gotta go, I can see that Lat's still awake in the bed with her feet swinging from side to side now, indicating that she cannot sleep and it's most probably because of the typing sound I'm making here hehe...sorry Lat. K, till then, turrah..

P.S: The time(7 : 34 AM) shown below of when this entry is posted is incorrect. The time now is supposed to be around 11.40 PM. Dunno how to change it. I'll figure it out later.

Hello there blog. Well, I'm new in here(blogger beta), not in blogging though. I have a blog in Friendster, but I think to blog out my life there is way too public. Yea okay, as if it's not public here you say, right? You see, the thing is, there are times when I just wanna let it all out without ALL my friends knowing. At least in here, only those who don't know me are probably the only ones who're gonna read this blog(which I don't mind) and I will only let some selected friends know about the existence of this blog but of course more friends will know about it in times to come. Oh, and when I said "gonna read", it was more like "will accidentally read" huahua. Besides, Friendster blog kinda sucks(hope I won't get sued for saying that. LOL.) AND, I'm just too lazy to keep a diary(book)..although the idea interests me, but I'm just plain lazy to do that. haha.. why diary when blog is just a click away? ok, LAME!

Oh-kay, so this is my first post. Lemme do a bit of introduction of myself here. Well, my name is Joyce and I'm an 18-yr old Uni student from Malaysia. Oopsy, phone's ringing. *on the phone*

oh well, gotta go now. I've something to do. I have plenty to say but until then, catch up with ya later~! turrahhh~
