i miss the HEAT...

Well....my days here are getting better each week.....atleast i would like to think so....
last friday i went to the overseas christian fellowship meeting....it was good....the fact that everyone was asian there...made me feel right at home....everyone was friendly and nice...everyone talked with the msian slang...which made me even more comfortable....its hard to talk to aussies...cos they tend to talk really fast and sometimes i havent got a clue wat they are saying.....
then last night i went to the night service at my aunts church...this serivce has more youths...so again i met more ppl....well, not alot but enuf to make me feel welcomed.....met the drummer.....fuuuyuuhhh.....darn cute la....like the ken barbie dolls.....really tall....macho looking....blond hair....friendly....but sadly taken....hahahah....not surprised there anyway.....
yesterday was the first time i drove in adelaide.....the speed limit here in 60....which is really hard to maintain.....but the ppl here are patient....they dont honk u.....not like in kl......
oh well...so far i guess things are ok....classes are ok....alot of reading to do tho....but i guess i shouldnt complain....

aussie rules

Man....its been centuries since i've blogged....sorry to those who have been checking out my blog and failed to read any new news about me....
I'm finally here in adelaide....cant believe it...the place is great...the people are darn friendly and nice....well, some...
staying with my aunt and her husband and his nephew....iv got my own room which is pretty cool.....i like my aunts house...its very cosy and nice....she has this nice backyard....or garden....so far since i came...we've had 2 bbqs in her backyard...and another one at a frens house.....bbqs here are popular...esp during summer....kinda sick of it already....hahha....
the weather here is ermm....not too bad.....some days its hot and dry....but windy....got abit burn because of the sun....when its hot is really hot....my back has gone abit darker now i suppose.....
classes started this week.....so far its ok....surviving thru....trying to get adjusted to uni life.....its so much different than school life....miss school loads....miss going for recess....miss hanging out with schoolmates....miss all the teachers.....uni is tough....plenty of work....everything has to be done by yourself.....nothing is spoonfed....wev got to plan out our own timetable too.....
frens here are hard to make....cos there isnt a specific class that i am in....like not in school whereby everyday u go into class with the same people....here...everyday u go into the lecture hall sitting at a different place....beside different ppl....but praise GOD iv got 2 frens who are in the same course as me whom i have some classes with so i sit with them.....the first year...most of the classes have a mixture of pharmcy....biotech...lab med...food and nutrition students....
been going to my aunts church which i really like...the service is short and sweet.....the sermons are pretty good....havent gone for the youth service tho...but will check that one out....but i did meet 2 youths from the church....kate and sam..(who is btw...quite cute...hahah)
ooooooooo.......there are heaps of cute aussie blokes here......so adelaide isnt so bad....hahhaa......the girls here have the most amazing complexion.....so smooth.....so nice......
shopping here isnt so bad too.....alot of cheap places.....i went to this garage sale....oe shed sale as they call it.....and bought a pair of boots....4 mags...2 books....2 pic frame...and a beach short....everything cost 2.90 aussie.......we're going again this sat to another sale....hahaha.......
well i ugess it'll take time to really get adjustd to lif ehere.....i cant force myself too much.....just gotta take it easy.....and soon i'll be back with an aussie accent...and maybe an aussie bf....hahahhahaha.......now that'll be the day...
oh yeah....here..soccer isnt popular....but 'aussie rules' is.....its like rugby but more exciting and interesting......plus it doesnt bore you like soccer does...hahha...sometimes

...i baked!!!...

Today was the first time i made a cake...all by myself......well...erm..except when my mum help whisk the egg whites...hehahh..i made my fav cake.......CHEESECAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.....yum yumm......
i'm glad that my day was abit productive compared to the previous days....doing nothing but feed my brain with rubbish from the idiot box, exercise my fingers by chatting on msn, and simply admiring and examining the walls of my home......
the offer letter from the uni i'm going to came today....so from now on...there will be lots ofthings that needs to be settled....things are kinda in a rush....which wasn't according to plan but can't complain....really feeling bad....i donno why....just thinking about how much my parents have to spend....its definately not cheap to go over...but i guess i just have to work hard and help them out....and make them proud and of course trust in the LORD as He is our provider.....
my sis got her tooth pulled out today cos she'll be getting braces.....so she is suffering right now but the pain doesn't stop here...hahah.....i heard that it hurts real bad when the braces is put on.....but i guess looking pretty does come with a price....
tomorow i'll be going down to ipoh to renew my passport....and hopefully will be able to get some cloth...for my dress...for daniels wedding....

...FINALLY....

Its been ages since i've last written my blog....been extremly lazy and i guess nothing exciting or interesting has been happening....maybe there were a couple of fun occasions but i can barely remember any plus my fingers can only type a certain amount of words....pure laziness...in short...
anyway one good thing that i can write about is....that my application to study in Uni SA, Adelaide has finally been approved.....YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1that means i'll be leaving soon in feb after chinese new year.....sigghhh......
thus, begins the whole process of packing....shopping....getting my visa done....medical checkup...and all that jazz......
i gues i'm pretty excited but anxiousness is hiding somewhere in the corner.....everything is gonna be different.....everything is gonna be new..

it feels so hard....cos after i finish STPM....all i've been doing is laze around....shopping....relazing..and now i'm back to studying.....and laboratory medicine doesnt' sound easy to me....hoping an dpraying that i'll get back into the momentum and start working up my brain.....

its good to be back home after a week or so in kl...had a great time in kl too...hanging out with frens....going shopping...or should i say window shopping...its so hard to spend less...hahaha....saw so many nice things that i would love to have bought but i know i've got to cut down on my spending.....was nice to see the yong's again....chuan jii looks so mature and so manly now....

new years day wasn't so bad....ended up in zhi yoongs place...playing cards and mahjong....whats wih mah jong la.....these ppl have started a mahjong centre....seems that they play every night..wel maybe not every night.....but occasionally....well mahjong is good...without the gambling bit......keeps the brain working and arms moving....builds up brain pwer and muscles..hahaha...

anyway hope today will be good.....that i'll have something productive to do like clean my room and start clearing stuff and packing mythings.....errrrggggghhhhhhhh....."LAZINESS, PLEASE LEAVE ME!!!!"
