Warmth~ ♥

Brought my super uber THICK Nike jacket (bought by mum during her trip to Bandung) to dear Ms Alicia today.
Coz her office is forever freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezing cold~~
She is always wrapped in her jacket and shawl like a bak zhang everyday (according to her XD)

While waiting for my turn to use the photocopy machine in the library,
I logged on to my Facebook using the library's PC,
and saw that I was tagged in a post :

Alicia Ho is very grateful to Alyssa Wong for her 'warmth'.. ♥ ♥

Feel so touched with this post ~~
Didn't know my jacket can provide warmth for her~~
It's just a simple status but it brightened up my day ^^

Just glad that at least it helps abit although it's still cold like mad in her room.
And she is one of the nicessssssssssssssssssst lecturers around..
Easy to mix with and lepak with =D

Feels gooooooooooooooooooood to do something nice for others.
Am gonna do another nice thing tomorrow !!! *yay~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XD*

Although my life is still soooooooooooo sucky here but I feel happy to make others happy.
Will try to do it everyday from now on. ^^

Life can be so simple if you just let it be that way ~ ♥

Who can give me warmth?

Choosing • Changing • Leaving

 *Warning !! Emo and wordy post !!*

Just heard that two of the Biomed juniors are leaving this course. 
*Coke and Hanessa*
Although I never befriended them, but somehow I 'feel' it.
*Maybe because I'm in super-uber-emo state currently*
It reminds me of the exact situation I was in, 1 year and 7 months ago.

Faced with 2 choices, to stay or to leave.

It was a hard decision, a really hard one.
I was having the time of my life back in UKM.
I had great friends and joined alot of exciting activities.
Most important is, I felt like I belong there.
I made some great friends whom I will treasure for all my life.
But I hated what I studied.

When it came to the beginning of 2nd semester, I received the offer letter from UTAR.
I got accepted into their Biomedical Science course.
It's what I've wanted all along.

So, to stay .. or to leave?

It was hard because I was comfortable and adapted to all the things there.
It scared me to hell at the thought of having to start all over again in a new environment with no friends at all.
Things that you got used to is good, change is scary, the unknown is even scarier.
I struggled alot making the decision.

And here I am now.

Yes, my life sucks here.
But I'm going after my dream, what I have always wanted to do.
My campus life is $#^$%&%$*&$*&#$^$%^ but I never regretted coming here.
Alot of people had criticized that I'm stupid for leaving local university, they said and I quote :

"Just finish the degree and get the certificate lar...doesn't matter what you study as long as you can get the certificate is enough already...Why waste your time and spend even more money?? Most people don't hold jobs that are related to their degree...Just suck it up and finish the 3 years there..."

I appreciate all the criticisms but I don't agree with you all.
One should always go for what he/she has interest in, not just any other course.
When you have to study something that you hate, you'll do terrible and your life will be miserable.
And yes I've seen real life example.
I've always disagree with parents who force their children to study what they want them to study instead of letting them to choose on their own.
I've always been against those who take up a course simply because it's easy/it sounds professional/it makes money/I don't give a damn what I study I just want to get a degree.

The only advice I will give is, go with your heart and go with your instinct.
Dream big but dream realistic.
Don't give in just because others pressure you to do so.

There's this poem I (or we all) learned in high school,

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both,
And be one traveler, long I stood,
And looked down one as far as I could,
To where it bent in the undergrowth.

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there,
Had worn them really about the same.

And both that morning equally lay,
In leaves no step had trodden black,
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence :
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

by Robert Frost

If you are standing at crossroad, don't hesitate to follow your heart.
Listen to it and it will lead the way.

And to both my juniors and all those who had taken the leap to change,
I applaud you for your courage.
You'll find something that you'll be excited, passionate about and love doing it for the rest of your life.

To Coke and Hanessa,
All the best to you and I wish I'd known both of you before this.

"Shoot for the moon, even if you fall you'll land among the stars."

Good luck and au revoir. 

Epilogue : I left UKM but I remained in close contact with my dear friends there. Although I spent only 1 semester there but our friendship remained strong and still growing until today. You know who you are ^^ 

Kay, I finish my test dy.
So can you tell me now whether u miss me?

A new blog~ ♥

Hi peeps~

I know I've been MIA for like what, 7 months??
LOL~ I've been wanting to update but I'm soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sick of my old template that every time I log in it just kills the mood COMPLETELY. = =
So, now I have a NEW blog with a NEW layout and a NEW header which I created on my own, with the photos that I'd taken on various occasions. =D
But I'll still keep my old blog on for my dear readers who miss my previous posts (especially the one on Iron Man XD)~

(You can find this link in this blog as well, just under my photo on the left.)

I wanted a new blog with WHITE theme but unfortunately photos don't stand out with white background *sulksssssssss*
In the end, I'm stuck with BLACK again. =( =( =( =( =(
Well, my blog will be kind of a semi-photoblog.
So, I guess ... black it is~

Okay, since it's my first post here, I shall introduce my little black~
Which is my baby Lumix LX3 camera =)
After a loooooooooooooooooooooooong consideration and looking through all sorts of cameras, I finally settled down with LX3.
And I'm VERY satisfied with it. ^.^
I'll be uploading alot of photos taken with this baby black~
But it's now with my brother in Klang, and just came back from an oversea trip to Beijing~
Woohoo~ My little black had been to Beijing~
Can't wait to get him back though.
I miss him SO MUCH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >.<

Here are some photos of my baby lumix~

Thanks to my dearest bestest daddy who got it for me~~~~~~ I love you so much~~~~~~ ♥♥♥

As dedication to my first post here in this brand new blog, I'll end this with ...

latest family portrait , and ..

a latest photo of me =)

Somebody is being a pig now !! =P
