Exploring Kuching – Atap Street

July 19, 2011 at 10:10 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , )

After Brooke Memorial, we walked over to Atap Street.

Atap Street #1

Seriously, I love this street. It was a serene street and everything here was so ancient (in a good way :)). Most of the shops here were run by Chinese elders. I think they have been here since they were young. Maybe they have been here even since their grandparents or great grandparents’ time. Anyways, in my opinion, Chinese culture is very well-maintained here.

It was almost 11 a.m. when we reached Atap Street and we hadn’t had any food then. So, it was time for food hunting.

We had our first Kuching meal in this small shop

Shaved ice

Rojak

Nyonya Kuih

After having our brunch, we walked along Atap Street. I had an indescribable feeling as we marched on and I took as many pictures as I could to capture my memories here. I was so glad I actually spent time exploring Atap Street. It was so much different from hectic streets in KL.

WANTS

June 18, 2010 at 3:08 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , )

1st WANT

You know what happens when a balloon burst?

It releases a loud sound, giving alarm to the people around it.

You know why does a balloon burst?

Because it receives excessive amount of pressure or it expands due to increase in temperature.

Do you know what am I trying to say here?

  • The balloon bursts not of it’s own accord
  • The balloon is innocent

I AM THE BALLOON (just that I am yet to burst)

I rather that I am a steel ball. Instead of absorbing the pressure and temperature to myself like a balloon, I release it to the people around me. If I were a high speed steel ball, I could be like a bullet. If I were a high temperature steel ball, I could disperse the heat to whoever touches it, make them jump up and down with hot hands.

2nd WANT

Why do I keep getting orders from people around me?

Why do I have to make them happy?

Why aren’t anyone making me happy?

Why am I the one to do what a clown is supposed to do and not somebody else?

Why am I the one who have to do stuffs to satisfy others needs?

If I were to have a remote control, I would like to have one that could control people. Tell them to do as I want.

When life’s getting nowhere

June 4, 2010 at 3:25 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

Life has been a roller coaster ride so far. Met different kind of people since I started working. Life has really taught me a great lesson, especially when I met those ridiculous person who were so full of themselves.

I feel the older I get, the lonelier I am. Everyone started from the same point, growing through experiencing stuffs. Whatever decision made at a turning point might affect one’s future greatly. Being in the position where I always torn being options, not knowing which path could lead me to what kind of future…fuh…I thought I encountered that countless of times.

When I was doing my application to enroll in local uni, I thought life was just about making choices, following what my heart tells me to do. I guess I wasn’t matured enough and I saw the world as a safe place. Silly as I was, I was yet to know the world and the people living on it.

I started to know true faces of people when I studied in uni. In uni, I met different kind of people. I thought I had enough, but they were just a small group of different people that I came across when I was a student. Stepping into working life, I met alot more different kind of people. People who like to boss some other people around, people who would do whatever it takes to achieve something, people who said stuff with hidden meaning, people who don’t give a damn about you, people who talk cock about how much they earn, people who comment about whatever you do, people with two faces, people who treat you sincerely. There are a lot more to learn. Sometimes, when dealing with these people, it made me feel tired, wondering why am I doing what I am doing.

When I was a student, I wanted to work so much. I thought of earning, spending my own money, and be happy. When I started to work, I wanted to be a student pulak. I think this is what people called ‘fan jin’. Almost 1 year into working life, I am already so exhausted. Exhausted for having to see the people I don’t wanna deal with, exhausted for having to bear greater responsibilities, exhausted for having to suffer my unhappy feeling and don’t know who could I turn to, exhausted for I couldn’t find a person who can understand me, exhausted for all the emotion uproar, exhausted for having to anticipate how my future gonna look like. Sometimes being in my status quo, doing what I am supposed or expected to do just isn’t enough. Why couldn’t life be perfect? Because we are not perfect, the earth itself isn’t perfect.

Sometimes I wonder why does God create human? Why did He create us with unexpected brain capacity? It makes human so unlimited, but at the same time so limited. We can achieve great things in life with some extraordinary ideas, like stepping on the surface of the moon. Yet, we can be so limited, not be able to decide most of the things that we came across, like choosing who we like to deal with, choosing when we are going to die.

Even your best friend, a selfish person, can be selfish to you, treat you like treating any other people. Having people to appreciate yourself, your existence, what you do, I think you can’t hope too much. I think I’ll be happier hoping nothing in return when I give to others. I think I’ll be even happier when I develop no feeling towards things, people and stuff.

Birthday week

June 24, 2009 at 4:18 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

So, my 23rd birthday falls on this week. I prefer to recall what happened on my birthday week rather than birth day. Hey, even Digi’s 50% extra reload bonus works 3 days before and after your birthday so that you can get reload bonus within your birthday week 😀

Last Monday, a friend of mine came from Johor for an interview in KL. She called me out to meet up and then treated me to see a movie. I decided to watch State of Play coz the movie was acted by all-time famous actors Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck, so I thought it would be nice. It was ok la, many funny scenes. It wasn’t draggy although the movie was about 2 hours, quite long for a non-action packed movie.

#1 I rate it 7/10

After movie Jia Ning and Shiau Loh joined us for pizza at Domino’s. We had a great time eating and gossiping and chatting. Each of us had 2 mugs of mushroom soups and we left the shop with bloated stomachs. LOLs. They treated me pizza and told me it was a birthday dinner treat for me. Aww…it’s so sweet.

Some of my friends had already wished me even before the big day and I would like to thank each and everyone for their sincere wishes. It felt great that at least someone remembered your birthday and they wished coz they cared. Yok Chuin called me all the way from Singapore and we had a small talk. I was kinda touched as the phone bills aren’t cheap for long distance calls. After all, no matter how independent a person is, he/she still needs friends and family…

I was kinda in a good mood today as it was my big day. Unfortunately, work goes on. I spent the whole morning studying US patents and afternoon typing report. Research was going nowhere and I needed to use up every cell in my brain to figure out a way to overcome those shitty problems. I am not gonna complain about it coz I chose to accept the job. Well, in the day I wished that time would pass by faster and sooner as I was anticipating to see a movie in cinema. Transformer 2 was a big hit and everyone was talking how awesome the movie was, so I gave it a shot.

Overall, the movie was good. But me thinks it was a bit overpacked with actions. But thanks to the big screen, I could still manage to see the transformations. When I was in the middle of the movie, I had a thought that the director were rushing to show the audiences what would happen next. I thought he could exaggerate on some scenes. It’s an action movie, it won’t be draggy if you drag on some part, but of course, with nice actions.

#2 I rate it 7.5/10

Undeniably, it was still a good movie after all 🙂

After movie, I bought myself 2 pieces of cakes. Hey, what’s birthday without cake or cakes or a nice dinner. Still I couldn’t have a nice dinner, I bought 2 pieces of cakes instead. First cake was for the cake itself and second cake was to compensate the nice dinner that I missed 😀

#3 sure fire of secret recipe cakes :D

I felt 2 kg fatter after eating these cakes 😦 so long for a joyous and happy birthday huh?

And…

#6 guess what? *excited tone*

#6 guess what? *excited tone*

I bought a present for myself

#6 it was a wallet :D

#7 it was a wallet 😀

This is to take over the role of my old, worn out wallet. 5 minutes in the shop and I bought this wallet. I guess I was a little desperate for a new wallet eh. LOLs…

I still have 2 stuffs I would like to get for myself, a pair of court shoes and a nice handbag. I went to Nose last Monday but couldn’t seem to get myself a pair of nice court shoes. I had 2 potential choices but both had their pros and cons, so I decided to buy none of them. The male promoter kept looking at my feet as I was posing in front of Jia Ning and Fong Lin to ask for their opinions. I was kinda embarrassed. Well, I hope I can get a pair soon 😀

Jia Ning told me there was sales in MNG, so I went to MNG in hope to get a nice handbag but to no avail. It was crowded with crazy young ladies and I couldn’t get my eyes on any bags as it was scattered all over the racks. Later, too..

Okay, it might seem a bit pathetic to buy present for oneself during one’s birthday. But I don’t think like that. I felt great to be able to buy presents for myself. I could earn and get something for myself, this further assure me that I’m an independent young lady, don’t I? 😀

And guess what..

#8 birthday cum graduation gift from my sis

hehe^^ thanks jie, for the watch…

And also

#9 A KEY!!!

#9 A KEY!!!

This is not an ordinary key. It’s not a pendant, like those moms give to their daughters who turn 21 years old. It’s not a key to a car nor a house. It’s a key to the padlock of a house…How great is that???? 😀

Actually I am currently staying in my junior’s house, and the padlock has been giving me some hard times. The other guys in the house said my key was spoilt, that’s why I couldn’t unlock the padlock without a few torturing gestures. A guy in the house lent me his key for the moment. So, I hope it would be hassle-free to get into and out of the house then.

Well, that’s about my celebration week…Would blog again if I were to celebrate with some other friends in the future 🙂

Okay, I’m off to organise stuffs in my new wallet 😀

Thanks everyone for everything.

Conquering Broga

May 24, 2009 at 8:36 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

I went hill climbing at Broga with KF last Tuesday. It was my first time to go hiking. It was fun but exhausting. Being an anemic and a person with weak stamina, hiking wasn’t easy for me. I was constantly in oxygen depletion condition and kept panting most of the time. Luckily I didn’t pass out, or else I couldn’t imagine how KF gonna rescue me.

Despite all the hardship I suffered, I forgot all of it when I reached the top. I know, for those who have conquered Broga, it was nothing surprising or to  be bragged about as the way up was easy by just following the trail. But to me, the success was greater compare to swimming for 2 km or finishing a marathon 🙂

The scenery from hill top was splendid. The air was cooling although it was about 9.30 a.m. when we reached the top. I was fascinated by the tranquility. There were no other hikers in sight.
