You WIll Always Be Remembered...

Man In The Mirror

by Michael Jackson

Ooh ooh ooh aah
Gonna make a change
For once in my life
It's gonna feel real good
Gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right

As I turned up the collar on
My favorite winter coat
This wind is blowin' my mind
I see the kids in the street
With not enough to eat
Who am I to be blind
Pretending not to see their needs

A summer's disregard
A broken bottle top
And a one man's soul
They follow each other
On the wind ya' know
'Cause they got nowhere to go
That's why I want you to know

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change, yey
Na na na, na na na, na na na na oh ho

I've been a victim of
A selfish kinda love
It's time that I realize
There are some with no home
Not a nickel to loan
Could it be really pretending that they're not alone

A willow deeply scarred
Somebody's broken heart
And a washed out dream
(Washed out dream)
They follow the pattern of the wind ya' see
'Cause they got no place to be
That's why I'm starting with me

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make that change

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
(Man in the mirror, oh yeah)
I'm asking him to change his ways, yeah
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make the change
You gotta get it right, while you got the time
'Cause when you close your heart
(You can't close your, your mind)
Then you close your mind

(That man, that man, that man)
(That man, that man, that man)
(With the man in the mirror, oh yeah)
(That man you know, that man you know)
(That man you know, that man you know)
I'm asking him to change his ways
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself then make that change

(Na na na, na na na, na na na na)
Oh yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Na na na, na na na, na na na na)

Oh no
Oh no, I'm gonna make a change
It's gonna feel real good
Sure mon
Just lift yourself
You know, you got to stop it yourself
Make that change
(I gotta make that change today, oh)
(Man in the mirror)
You got to, you got to not let yourself, brother oh
You know that
(Make that change)
(I gotta make that make me then make)
You got, you got to move
Sure mon, sure mon
You got to
(Stand up, stand up, stand up)
Make that change
Stand up and lift yourself, now
(Man in the mirror)
Make that change
(Gonna make that change, sure mon)
(Man in the mirror)
You know it, you know it, you know it, you know
Make that change

RIP now MJ, your sudden passing has left us speechless and in grief. You have certainly made a change in so many ways. With that, we want to thank you for your music, passion and most importantly your kindness. Your legend will forever lives on.. we love you.

So Here I Am...

... online-ing from my hostel room. ekekeke. So far, there's only two of us here.. there's supposed to be another girl but she hasn't "checked in" yet. I am hoping that she's changed her mind and decided to stay off campus instead. The reason I said that is exactly just as the saying goes: "two's a company, three's a crowd". It's pretty comfortable here with only us two roommates and I'm so grateful that my new roomie is unexpectedly a friendly one and healthy too(she does Yoga. Her Yoga mat is hanging on the cupboard). haha.

So, for my new resolutions for this sem... I am determined to lose weight before sis Grace's wedding in November and also to be more disciplined in my studies(although I have just missed two classes today T__T) especially now I'm taking Miniproject. It's like a final year project but only mini. Hence the name, Miniproject haha. Our project title is "DC Motor Speed Control System Design". The lecturer showed us some of the seniors' works and they actually looked pretty interesting. I'm quite nervous about doing this project because a lot of commitment and determination should be put in doing this. Well, harap2 bulih buat la kan~ huhu.

As for now, sa masih terkapai2 mo cari combination lock for my luggage. nda puas hati ni, sa yakin bulih unlock ni. If you still remember, I mentioned about my locked luggage last time.. yes, the combination for the lock is still yet to be figured out. haha. I have tried all the combinations, that is from 001-999, once. But I shall try again for the second time later on. I might be rushing too much just now, there could be some careless mistake there. yakin ni, yakin. haha

bah~ itu ja la kio~ daaa..~

edited: yea, I did try 000 for the combination lock.

Balik Kampung

Well Bloggie, mom was admitted to the hospital for one night last Friday. Don't worry, nothing too serious. Anyway, we took turns accompanying her at the hospital. She's home now, but need to check up on her from time to time; can't really leave her alone too much, in case something happens *touch wood*. Oh no, she's not bedridden. huh.

There was a cousin's wedding reception the next day at my dad's hometown(a.k.a kampung), and since mom couldn't attend it with dad, I had to go on behalf of her. And thus, I had to cancel my island trip with friends on Sunday(sorry friends for the let-down). While on the way to Ranau, I managed to camwhore but mostly took pictures of the undeniably majestic Mount Kinabalu. I couldn't resist from taking pictures of the mountain; the sky was so clear that you could actually see the mountain terrains..and the long and narrow white line of a waterfall cascading down the steep mountain side. It never fails to amaze me, that mountain. But the main reason that triggered me to take tons of photos(in hopes of getting the perfect shot) of the mountain was because of the umbrella-looking cloud over the mountain top. I've seen that type of cloud in a picture of some mountain on the internet during one of my internet-surfing times before, and amazed by it very much. So to actually see it right infront of my very own eyes was like whoah! sakai. hahah. It was this picture that I'm talking about:

I know, ain't that a sight to behold. Apparently that type of cloud is called the "lenticular clouds"(Google it if you want to know more). But the one at Mount Kinabalu was not really much as this one, the shape was definitely there though. hehe. Okay2, here's the picture...

Can you see it? It's that cute little lens shaped cloud right on top of the mountain. Sorry for the blurriness. It was captured while the car was moving. And here's me taking pictures of what was left of the fading clouds at Nabalu(Kundasang)..~

Dad wanted to take a picture too for his laptop wallpaper. haha.

Macam di Jipun kan? boleh kasi jadi gambar poskad ni tau.

Alright, enough about the lenticular clouds(uuuu~ mentang2 la new word, mo juga pkai balik2 haha). We headed to Ranau and went to the wedding. It was definitely not one of the merriest ones because not many came.. most of the people only came for only a short while for they had few more wedding receptions to rush to. There were A LOT of weddings on that particular day. I counted, there were about six to seven!(five in Ranau alone, one was my neighbour and another one I saw while on the way to Ranau) The theory is because of the date: 6th day of the 6th month and the 6th day of the week. Isn't that supposed to be an evil number? you know, 666... hmm? *Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath song pops in head at this point*. Whatever it is, congrats to cousin Anun and hubby.. slamat pengantin baru.. Here's the only "good" picture I have of them..

Yea, I know, bad photographer. It was on zoom mode.. because people were crowding infront to take pictures too.. And for those who don't know, my cousin(the bride) is dressed in Dusun Ranau(not really sure which specific Dusun tribe) traditional clothing. Again, congrats to them. At the wedding, I had the chance to meet and catch up stories with my cousin, Dianne! It's always fun chatting with her.

The next day, dad and I stopped by at the Tiong Hua Cemetery("tiong hua" simply means "chinese people" in Hokkien according to dad) to visit my grandparents' grave since Kongkong's(grandpa) 12th death anniversary and Nenek Cina's 10th(I just found out during the visit that they share the same deathday) was the day before, which was June 6th. That was the first time I visited the grave after it was cemented. The last time I came was still of earth and wood as marking. Grass was all over the gravesite, woulda brought something to clean it if planned earlier. Sempat cabut rumput sikit2 ja.. sepertimana yg boleh dilihat di dalam gambar. haha.

So, that's all as an update for my holidays. haha.

p/s: Dad is flying back to Sandakan this morning and Inden's flying back home from the Phils today. One leaves, another one comes.

Oh Dear..

I can't believe how cruel our very own locals can be. This is a true story of dogs being exiled to an inhabitable and isolated mangrove island, and all this is happening in Selangor. I've read about this on Star news last week and my heart just ached for those poor and pitiful dogs out there. They provided a link for us to visit, but I only got the chance(or remembered) to actually visit that link just now. Here is something from the link( to clarify what is really happening to those of you who doesn't have any idea about this.

"About 300 stray dogs were rounded up
by Pulau Ketam residents and deported
to an isolated island to fend for themselves.

Over half of them are already dead and the
remaining ones may not live long. A rescue
mission is being mounted and your help is needed."

The residents of Pulau Ketam sent some 300 stray dogs to exile on a remote island where the harsh conditions almost certainly guarantee a horrible death. Of the 300 dogs sent there, more than three-quarters are presumed to be already dead. I traveled to the island with Sabrina Yeap of Furry Friends Farm and managed to save only one dog on this reconnaissance trip. We did see several other starving and dying dogs along the mangrove shore.

I am mounting an urgent rescue mission to capture and transport the remaining survivors back to Sabrina's Furry Friends Farm animal shelter. But time is running out and there might be only skeletons and carcasses left to collect on our next trip. Boat hire is expensive there. It is a tourist area and it has already cost me a few hundred ringgit for boat hire alone, so far. The rescued dogs cannot be transported on the regular ferries.

Almost nobody will lift a finger to help without a fee. This is understandable. The locals are already shaking their heads in disbelief that there are outsiders who want to save the animals they so casually discarded. Instead of pointing fingers and antagonising them, we need their co-operation to help save the unfortunate creatures. In the process, we also hope to educate the islanders on better treatment of animals. It would be an impossible mission if we didn't win their hearts.

To help, e-mail TV Smith at or Sabrina Yeap at
