Adrian's 21st Birthday
Last Saturday i went to my cousin's birthday at Sri Sayang. It had been years since i've been to an apartment party/stay. Actually it had been ages i attended any family members birthday.

The 2 bed -apartment practically exploded with people coming in non stop with his friends. Full blown social butterfly he is. His friends are so diversify..haha...

Saya Kalah.

Part of the drinks. Some i haven't even heard of wth....Kids nowadays. Saya Kalah sekali lagi.

Him and his "Sau Pau". Because no one bought him any cake. He had 4 cakes last year instead hahaha.

Family reunion. Tinky with Adrian

Me and adrian. Happy Birthday again!

My fisherman brother, Poppy

I think all my family members are giant breed, me included. All also "thick" and tall ;P
Poppy and Tinky..HAHAHA such a funny nickname combination.

Finally the two boys of the family. Two wacky dudes...that always team up and bully me when we were little.

Still remember once..during a family BBQ, i wanted to have the last satay but then this Adrian said very loudly while wacking my hand " CANOT EAT, LET POPPY EAT!! " T______T

Anways, me and ting left pretty early to join the usual gang at gurney drive. What a refreshing change from the usual mamaks and pubs. Real nice to see the Foobak back from Manipal. Another future doctor hahaha...

Thank you ting for layaning me whole night and also driving most of the time. HAHAHAH
Gotta run...for Water Horse

New Look!
yeah, another lame title but its the hardest part when it comes to blogging. Haiz

Anyway, the smart me accidentally deleted some part of my template before even saving a copy of it somewhere so instead of finding out what i deleted, i just replace the whole thing. HAHA

I know it looks abit dull with the while background and whitish gray font color, but i'll try to reedit it while i am still unemployed wtf.

Anyhoo....I want to ranted about TARC again although i am no longer a student with them.

I wrote about them last year around this time as well. I don't know why their staff have to be so rigid with the students. We don't owe those staff anything in the first place, why don't they just be more co-operative?

You see, I haven't had the time or convenience to go KL Tar office personally to collect my certificate during weekdays and since the office doesn't stay open for the entire day on weekends so it's very difficult for me to obtain it.

The next logically step to take is to ask any friends of mine that still lives around setapak to collect it.

First attempt: DENIED ! Must have photocopy of my IC and permission letter.

Second attempt: DENIED! My permission letter to my fren is not long and formal enough. It's just a permission letter, how long can it be? Please think, can?

Third attempt: DENIED! Since I'm in Penang, i used Words to draft the letter and emailed it to TL and according to the staff, formal letter must be handwritten. WTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *Roooarrrrrrrrrr*

I really don't understand whats the difference between a handwritten letter and a printout. It can still be done by my friend and not me isn't it ?

Ok, so tomorrow kesian my fren, will go again to help me get my cert for me. Poor guy.

Tarc, this canot continue. Does this means that those who lives in Sarawak or Sabah had to take a flight to KL just to collect their cert?

Once again, try to be more flexible next time. haiz.

I shall leave you guys with a photo of the best pan mee in the world. Location: chow Kit, KL..

Fastest update
in a long long time.

I'm gonna write about my day today.

I went for a facial and i thought, the beautician must have thought to herself, "celaka this girl, the luas permukaan of her face so big, waste my cotton pad and lotions."

HAHAHAHA

Ok, the above was super lame. However due to recent events, i just realize that i am actually not as materialistic as i thought i am. Diamonds might just not be my best friend.

I shall be making my 3rd trip to KL next week in a single month wtf. Getting tired of all the day trips although it's great seeing different set of friends every other day. HAHAHA

Ok, i think i am getting emo again.

Kthxbye.

Venice
Venice Venice Venice!!

I was in Venice back in January with Wendy and i'm only blogging about it in March. Wau, procrastinator maximus.

We nearly miss our flight because Wendy's train got delayed and we were rushing through the gates of Liverpool airport to barely make it but manatau the stupid plane got delayed for 20mins. By the time, we got to Venice mainland, it was already dark, ya, thanks to winter, the days are so much shorter. Breath-taking view from the plane.

Snow Mountain ahhhh...!! Looks something like my imaginary heaven.

Our hostel is located at St. Stae vapretto station, and when we got there, we don't know how to get to the hostel because the instruction was to call the caretaker. So after asking around for abit, coincidently we ask the correct person because he IS the caretaker! haha so lucky and so we made friends with 1 hongkie and 2 taiwanese girls.

It's kinda cool that although the uncle speaks only Italian and we know 0% italian, we could still understand each other. Our room...which is the best hostels ever! It's like hotel..

And the bathroom....hairdryer provided.

Wendy, remember the uncle kept asking us to go dine at Luca's place? Luca luca...and we found out Luca's pizza parlour damn expensive.

Best pizza i've ever had. And considering the prices in Venice, this is a very cheap place to dine. Ae Oche and they have alot of branches throughout Venice. 1 pizza will cost u about 7 Euro and that 1 pizza is HUGE.

Luckily the hongkie gal, Joanne came along with us and we had 2 pizza that is shared among 3 of us. For comparison purposes, obviously the pizza is bigger than my face...haha..and cheese and ham and mushroom..all my favorite ingredients! That pizza that i'm holding is the usual serving for 1. Best of all, the waiter is cute and speaks with a slight italian accent :) :)

The next day, we wanted to rise and shine very early, but i guess traveling is tiring and age is catching up, so we slept like piggies till kinda late..HAHAHA .

The Basilica di San Marco . The gold part is really made of gold. If it's in Malaysia, the next day already habis dikorek by scavenger.

Inside the basilica, the interior was really amazing and alot of gold ceilings. Then there's a signboard showing " To the Treasures" Me and Wendy was like WOW! To the treasures..so we followed the arrow............to a guard which we had to pay 2Euro each to see the treasures -____-

One of the many treasure. A sword emblem with gold, pearl, emerald, ruby, jade dan lain-lain. Kinda Grand right.

Doge Palace and the basillica. The palace was dubbed as the Pink Palace. Where is the pink, my dear?

Venice's famous gondolas. 40Euros each. Any takers?

Dorsudoro area. My jumping protege AHAHAHA Somehow after crosing the Accademia Bridge ( a similar one was seen in cambridge!) we accidentally ventured into this area and its totally deserted except for the occasional tourist.

More sight seeings

Phantom of the opera bought his mask here.

Italian Fashionistas. Fur coats with perfectly groomed hair deck complete with LV bags. Banyak sekali, people like this. It's a surprise PETA people doesn't come after them.

Then we went all the way round the whole island to Zattere >> Gelateria Nico; apparently the most renowned gelateria in Venice.... All for the giandiuotto, consisted of large slabs of chocolate & hazelnut gelato (hazelnuts roasted and chopped very finely) squished into tall glasses with the rest of the available space filled with soft-as-a-cloud freshly whipped cream. I'm still amazed at just how much cream they managed to cram into the glasses and balance on top!

Sunset view from vapretto.

Oh..after that...started our hunt for LV, Gucci shops. Damn hard to find in the winding and confusing dark alleys of Venice. Our tea. Italians like to have lil snacks with caffe expresso randomly. YUMMYLICOUS!

Then got nearly lost when we tried to go back to St. Stae. Seriously, the place looks so different during day and night >.> The grand canal at night.

Then after dinner of pasta in one of the restaurant (forgot to take photos) we went back to Ae oche for 2nd round of dinner. It's simply too delicious, de pizzas!! I miss it soo sooo much T___T
FYI, most restaurant have cover charge. So that's something like their service charge and it's not really cheap. This is the first time i see pizza in the shape of karipap. And it's so tasty most probably because it's cover up...hmmm

My tiramisu...

And we went back to the hostel, 2 very stuffed tourists. AHAHAH

The view from Rialto Bridge in the morning. The weather was wonderful on the last day we were there.

The only souvenir we got from the Venetians. He's only the conductor of the waterbus. Imagine the abundant of look-alike in Italy.

The guy that sold me the last gelati i had in italy is by far, the most good looking person i've seen in my life. I'm too lost for words in his gorgeousness that i forgot to take a photo of him. Such a waste~ I miss u alot, gelato boy...

Tip # 1: for those traveling to Venice, actually you don't need to buy the vapretto ticket. Maybe just buy 2. We bought the one that valids for 48hrs and then we found out that most of the places are within walking distances. And if you board the vapretto from smaller stations, you don't actually have to PAY! So the smart and cunning way to save money is buy the one way 6Euro ticket when you enter Venice island and then another 6 Euro when you leave the island with your luggage. However, be careful not to be caught without the ticket(biglietto), or else you might be fine heavily. HAhaha.

Tip # 2: The wine there are really cheap and you can get 1 liter of them for 1.5Euro. So if you really love drinking wine, you can bring you own bottle over to a tratoria or a shop with alot of barrels and get them to fill it up for you. It's really cheap. 1euro for a bottle of water. 1euro for a can of beer too. and they sell wines in kebab stores. =__=

Verdict: Venice is so cold during winter i think because of the narrow alleys that turns into wind tunnel. SEJUK SIAL! and it;s not as smelly as summer. The water in the canals are kinda dirty and they gondolier did not sing also.

After all being said, it is still a very romantic place and i love the feeling of getting lost in the ancient alleys and stumbling into lovely areas away from the hoards of tourists. It's a very slow pace city and it's littered with cafes, and small shops, a lot with masquerade masks.

I would love to go back there one day, before it sinks, and explore more of it; as even if you spend a year there, it's impossible to finish exploring the beauty of Venice.

Bye AhMa
Today my last grandparent left us. She drew her last breathe at approximately 10Am and i've been really busy since to help prepare her journey to her next life.

Although she is now gone, but i am really glad that she has lead a really good life and gone in a very peaceful way. and because i have so many relatives, the funeral places is like a party for us.

Eat, drink, telling lame jokes and playing mahjong. I think this would also what she wants. Her next of kins to be happy.

Goodbye Ahma. Although i am not close to you and you already repeat whatever you say like a broken tape recorder, i will still miss you. Now you can go back to EngHock :)

Marilah Mari.. Mari Mengundi..
Last night, more than 60 000 people turn up at Han Chiang field. Too bad i was stuck in Taiping, or else i would had been there with the rest of my relatives. Tak sangka sekali, my dad so semangat, he walked all the way there from my house. HAHAHA..

While on the highway towards Taiping, i see alot of billboards with BN advertisment, with messages like "ONLY ONE CHOICE" but i think they made an error there. We have more than 1 party in Malaysia therefore we still can choose.

In a way, i am very happy that penang people are very kaypo, because if there are not, 60K people wont suddenly turn up at the Hanchiang stadium. I've watched video on youtube and i think it's more happening than Jay Chou concert.

Tomorrow is THE Day that we have all been waiting for. Let's end all this battle of seminar, ceramah and poster with a change. Let us have result rather than something that has been repeated for the past 50 years.

I'll be glued to the TV whole night tomorrow instead of clubbing out there. haha.. For 1 night, Just make a change for a better nation.

Opposition Ceramah at Han Chiang Stadium
I was there last saturday together with the other ten thousand people who turned up as well. Because i care bout my future in Malaysia. I do not want to live in a country that with fear of suddenly being stabbed by a keris.

From standing under the rain for an hour until the rain stopped, the crowd was there too. All listening eagerly to what the speaker has to say. No surprise there as the speakers themselves were a crowd puller, Anwar Ibrahim, Karpal Singh, Lim Guan Eng and not forgetting our blogger turns politician, Jeffooi.

I am really sad to know when people my age who can vote, just doesn't even bother to register, yet they kept complaining about malaysia. When THE day for them to do something about all this, they just coward out and said " You can vote can ady lah, my vote, just 1 vote wont change anything" or " Vote also no use, the BN sure win"

Yes, although they will win, but at least we have opposition in there to check and balance with what they do to the country, how they use the tax payer money which translates back to your parents money or my parents money.

Disappointed that they find politics boring, daunting and complicated and it's all the same to them, that they just dont wanna know anything about it, rather knowing bout edison scandal. Giving up the only right that we can hold on to for the moment.

One even pisses me off by saying that, I can't even settle my own life why wanna care about the goverment? I care about myself that's why i bother to register myself and vote because i want to live in a place where racism is lower, equality is higher. I don't want to be called a second class citizen anymore in my own country.

Deny the 2/3 majority seat in parliament at least,we cannot fight them ourselves, but we can send someone inside who is willing to do so... check and balance... with a 2/3 majority.. it is like dictatorship.... They can call us cina bodoh, balik china lah... yet, what can we do because we do not have enough voice, in a place that help forms our country.... they can take a keris and vow to soak it with darah cina babi ..Is this the type of people u wanna send into the parliament??

The above is something i just told a friend of mine who is studying in UM. Not everyone is as fortunate as her in getting a placement in local university. Not everyone is fortunate enough to get to use facilities provided by the past government (dissolved ady now). For someone at her education level, I expected something more logical and reasonable coming out of her.. but i see none of it.

Just a simply retort i can say: If you don't vote, please don't come complain to me about malaysia anymore.

Don't vote by default towards the scale this time. Vote for a change. This is coming from a very bimbo girl okie...surprisingly..

8th of March is the day i will stay home for most of the time, glued on to the idiot box.. HAHAHAA
