Though I am still rather clueless as to what I should do now, I feel better in a way. Weird, I know. But hell, I am the definition of weird. I would love to plan my life, but I love doing things spontaneously more. Sure, this is life. Life is hard. Life's a bitch.
I say life's too short.
Yes, of course I have to be financially stable and all. But I am a Psychology & Marketing major. It's like unconsciously I wanted to be mentally troubled and be forever stressed. If I wanted a more "normal" life which included a 9 to 5 job in a cubicle for the rest of my life (though never having to worry about money), I would've studied accounting. Both my parents are bankers... go figure.
I am the black sheep of not only my family. Compare me with the rest of my cousins, uncles, aunts... I am the only one who stands out. I think I would actually disappoint them if I got a 9 to 5 job, got married and have kids. Instead of "Wow, you're doing bla bla bla in Australia?!" I'd get "Oh, that's... good. (awkward silence) How's the weather there?". Hehehe...
I used to hate being different. Now I'm loving every single bit of it.

What do I have to show for this 2 years after graduation? In fact, what do I really have after 23 years of being alive?
I seriously can't think of anything.
But hey, things should get better right? I'm too young for a mid life crisis, if this is one, doesn't that mean that my life expectancy is only at 56 years? Gosh, I AM thinking too much...
But as clueless as I am right now, I am rather happy. I've got a "stable" job, I have the qualifications, I enjoy my bubble tea & coffee with friends, the
I guess I just need a little more time to figure out what I can really do with myself. Too many issues at once nowadays... mainly financial issues. So many plans, so little money...
Well, life's unfair, I've already accepted that LOL.
Anyways, a little bit of advertisement here: G.rabit's new arrivals are in! New pics are at the blog, do visit it and become a fan of it on Facebook.
Yeap, I've got a little business venture going on =)

Here's what happened:
Me: *sees an egg in a bowl of water* "Is that a half-boiled egg?"
Sam: "No, it's a FULL-boiled egg"
Me: *blink blink* "Don't you mean HARD-boiled egg?"

If you really care about her, really love her like how you've said in the past, present and in the potential future, you should know how she thinks and how she feels.
You've just become insensitive and really just emotionally rash in whatever you've done. You think by sending her that sms today would make yourself feel better? I know you're now wallowing in guilt and wishing you could just crawl into a ball and die.
But then again, you could've wanted to do that just so that you MIGHT get SOME kind of attention from her.
Guess what boy, grow a pair of balls and man up. I'm more than a man than you will ever be. (Now, THAT is a personal attack direct to you.)

Sometimes, God sends people who are clearly wrong for you, bad for you even. But there is always a reason behind it all. I can truly see it now.
He sent someone who was just an introduction to love for me, then there was the one who was so important that I couldn't breathe without her. And just because I couldn't breathe, He took her away to teach me that I can indeed stand on my own 2 feet. And she taught me that even if 2 people were in love, it doesn't mean that they must be together.
Then there was the one where I had to hide in the shadows with, I'm surprised I lasted that long. But I learned that I could make a difference in other people's lives and even help them to be a better person. Along came the not-right-for-you-but-you-are-just-desperate-enough-to-accept. I don't think I need to explain that now, do I?
The one who really seemed like THE ONE came along. I learned that when I am blind, I'm not only blind, but crazy even. The one who made me throw everything aside but somehow I knew it would just end. I just refused to accept it.
Then it all went downhill. I lost hope. I couldn't care anymore thus resulting in 2 disastrous ones. One worse off by a mile than the other. And I am just too tired to give anything a try anymore.
Now I realized why I met all those people. And why I had to go through everything.
God purposely sent me all the wrong and seemed-to-be-right-but-were-wrong people because he wanted me to recognize the right one when I see her.
Guess what, she's perfect =)

Let me show you what I can do.
No words, no reason.
Simple silence broken by piano keys.
I will be by your side.
What have you done to me?
You've made me see...
ore zutto anata no soba ni iru.
shinjitekure yo. ore no ai.

Just wait around and see
Maybe I am much more you never know what lies ahead
I promise I can be anyone I can be anything
Just because you were hurt doesn't mean you shouldn't bleed
I can be anyone anything I promise I can be what you need.

Sam: *knocks on my room door* Vern!Did you get it?
Me: *opens my room door* Yes?
Sam: Are you in the toilet? *points at the toilet door*
Me: *blink blink*
-3 seconds of silence-
Read it again, SLOWLY.

As per normal, I greeted them and asked the first question that we're supposed to ask: "Would you like to go on the sushi train (kaiten belt/revolving conveyor belt/turn turn sushi/Japanese merry-go-round/whatever-the-fuck-you-wanna-call-dishes-going-round-and-round-on-a-moving-belt)?"
Her husband wanted to give it a try but the wife gave me a very skeptical and concerned look. And then she asked "Are the sushi fresh?"
I told her yes because it was about 6pm and the chefs were preparing the lot for the dinner crowd.
Then she added "I want really fresh sushi, like cold ones."
In my head I went "WTF?!?!?!?!?!" but my mouth just went "Huh?"
Luckily the husband came to the rescue and said "Honey, fresh sushi is warm, if it's cold it means it has been sitting in the fridge."
OMG, I tried so so so so so so so so so hard not to laugh in her face. ARE YOU STUPID WOMAN?!?!?! DO YOU KNOW HOW SUSHI IS MADE?!?!?!?!?!
HOW CAN FRESH SUSHI BE COLD!??!?!!?!
You don't exactly cook rice using a fridge, dip the nori (seaweed) into ice water and freeze every single goddamned ingredient before rolling it!!!
Yes yes, I know. I'm mean. But hey, this shows that customer service is sooooooooooooo not the field for me.
But it is funny how when a customer walks in and we start shouting "IRASHAIMASE!" ("welcome" in Japanese) and the whole restaurant staff chimes in. That's not the funny part. What's funny is that sometimes when we see that there are no Asians in the shop, one of us (usually my MANAGER) would yell out "DIU LEI LOU MOU" instead.
For those who don't know Cantonese, go ask a friend who does XD

McDonalds losing a lawsuit over the use of the prefix "Mc" in MALAYSIA!
The defendant: McCurry.
Okay, am I the only one who finds this amusing?
Let me explain okay? The judge who overruled McDonalds was Judge Gopal Sri Ram. McDonalds is such a huge ass corporation that you'd they they'd try to at least bribe the judge right? But noooooooo... They lost.
And what was the defendant's defense? McCurry stands for Malaysian Chicken Curry.
ROFL!!!!! No wonder McDonalds couldn't bribe the judge, HE LOVED CURRY TOO MUCH!!!
Okay, lame, I know. Don't read this post then!
Haha! Too late! =P

Anyways, to entertain you guys, I shall be blogging about my experiences working in ZushiBento Carousel.
Top 3 Things I Learned in ZB:
I know, I'm actually ranting in this note, but hey, feels gooooooooooooooooooooooood to do so ;)
3. Hungry customers are not nice people. Seriously woman, if another table got up and went towards the sushi train and SAT DOWN even before I could do anything, WHAT THE HELL DO YOU EXPECT ME TO DO??? Sure, the customers changed their mind, WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT THAT?!?!?! CAN YOU TELL ME?!?!?! If that's not bad enough, the husband was complaining about waiting so long, I said there's a table ready, I just need 2 minutes to clear it and they can have it to their heart's content. OMG, JUST 2 MINUTES YOU FUCKING AUSTRALIAN RETARDED REDNECK! He just went on and on and on and on about having waited so long. Excuse me, I need 2 minutes to clean the table FOR YOU. Or if you'd rather stand there and complain to me for 2 minutes, be my guest, don't fucking blame me if someone gets the table AGAIN.
2. People in Perth don't bother reading. ESPECIALLY ASIANS! OMG, not like I don't wanna help my own race, but seriously, there's a HUGE ASS SIGN that says "PLEASE WAIT TO BE SEATED, THANK YOU". I mean, you can see that the place is already small enough, SO WHY DO YOU WANNA CROWD IN THE SMALL WALKWAY?!?!?! I know, kiasu ma...
1. Younger Asian women who appear with older Caucasian guys think that they're better than everyone else. With their branded bags and noses so high up in the air, they forget that people just see them as an Asian whore. What? I'm being mean? Come deal with one of these women THEN talk to me. Kthxbai.

I really had a fucked up day.
But a good evening. Nothing clears my head better than to lie down & forget the world with beautiful views of the city. And not forgetting great company =)
Thanks for being there for me.

Considering getting another one, maybe an Epiphone. Yes, still in love with LP after all these years. What can I say?
Updates on Project365:
I miss this woman.
It was... different. Nice, just different.
Soft shell crab.
Love love love!
Not so good.
Yeap, had dinner at this Japanese place called Yoshiya in the city. Overpriced and seriously, not as good as I thought it would be. Shall stick to Matsuri next time.
It's been 7 months and counting, you've moved on...
I still feel exactly the same.
Thursday, April 02, 2009
The things I want to tell a few people but do not have the guts to. I think they should know who they are.
1. You're my first love and you will always have a special place in my heart but I can't just pick up where we left off because my heart is no longer there. Even if it was, it's broken.
2. It all happened so fast and I can barely remember what happened but I'm glad we're still friends. I hope Jun Xi grows up to be a good man unlike his father.
3. You were a rebound. I'm sorry.
4. Two words, drunken mistake.
5. You didn't just break my heart, you stomped on it, spit on it and left it in a corner to be forgotten. But you taught me a lot about relationships and I want to thank you for helping make me the person I am now.
6. I think I screwed up your head and emotions a little too much but I think everything worked out fine.
7. You made me realize that I appear in people's lives for a reason and I'm glad you finally stood up and said "No" for a change. I just wished it wasn't said to me.
8. There's no reason, I just do.

Got this picture of Sharon when I went for dim sum with them.
The place I enjoy going to clear my head.
Mesha's friend, can't remember his name. A very nice and funny guy =)
The mirror that talked.
I really like this one.
Smile like no tomorrow.
See the smiley face?
A sight that I never get tired of.
p.s. no tripod was used ;)
There, all the pictures up till today. A very happy birthday to my best friend/brother, Tee Han. I'll see you in Adelaide soon.

If I can love you this much so far away, imagine what I could be if you felt the same way =)
i must be crazy to fall for you,
to fall after only seeing you twice,
you stole my heart that day,
and every single time you look my way.
I swear that if I can see you everyday, I will fall in love 365 times in a year... every single time, with you.
Thursday, March 26, 2009
if you're happy, if you're wishing on a star,
i would make a wish, a wish for you,
that she would love you, more than i do.
Delays in Project365. I'm just way too tired to snap anything now. What I wouldn't give for a beer... LOL.
Nights people... and sweet dreams to you.

Managed to take No.11 for today but it's not perfect. However, it IS very cute ^^
Okay, back to practicing... I will get better =)
Monday, March 23, 2009
Sorry for the delay in Project365. Was totally exhausted during the weekend. Will post up a picture of me soon... I look terrible. On second thoughts, no, I'm not going to post a picture of me...
Goodnight people! More panadol to dull the pain for me...
Saturday, March 21, 2009

Okay, gonna go KO now.
Thursday, March 19, 2009
I will blog about other things too, just give me some time =)
Just finished working a full day. Tiring but it makes me feel useful at least...

I'm staring at perfection
Take a look at me so you can see

Not too happy with the composition of the picture but as always, it carries a message. I doubt anyone would see it besides the ones close to me... maybe not even them.
Saturday, March 14, 2009
Basically you take a picture a day and by the end of the year you look back and see how much you've changed/improved.
Here's the first picture for the project:
Monday, March 09, 2009
People tell me that I'm so nice that I get hurt all the time.
Wanna know what I think?
I don't care.
If getting hurt is what it takes to be close to you, please don't be afraid to hurt me.
I'm used to getting hurt. That's why I'm too nice. But I really don't think I'm too nice.
I just... that's just the way I am. I can't change this part of me.
So just accept me this way? Please?
Anyways... on a lighter note, I've been addicted to B&W photography since I've gotten my baby Alpha ^^ (was gonna name him? her? it? Alfie but the 13 year old dad news came up)
Here's a sample:
I know it's not perfect but I'm slowly improving!
I NEED MODELS! Volunteers please step up ^^
But I've got no money to pay you la... but profile pictures for you good enough? Hehehe...

Your view on yourself:You are down-to-earth and people like you because you are so straightforward. You are an efficient problem solver because you will listen to both sides of an argument before making a decision that usually appeals to both parties.
The type of girlfriend/boyfriend you are looking for:You are a true romantic. When you are in love, you will do anything and everything to keep your love true.
Your readiness to commit to a relationship:You are ready to commit as soon as you meet the right person. And you believe you will pretty much know as soon as you might that person.
The seriousness of your love:You are very serious about relationships and aren't interested in wasting time with people you don't really like. If you meet the right person, you will fall deeply and beautifully in love.
Your views on educationYou may not like to study but you have many practical ideas. You listen to your own instincts and tend to follow your heart, so you will probably end up with an unusual job.
The right job for you:You have plenty of dream jobs but have little chance of doing any of them if you don't focus on something in particular. You need to choose something and go for it to be happy and achieve success.
How do you view success:You are confident that you will be successful in your chosen career and nothing will stop you from trying.
What are you most afraid of:You are afraid of things that you cannot control. Sometimes you show your anger to cover up how you feel.
Who is your true self:You are mature, reasonable, honest and give good advice. People ask for your comments on all sorts of different issues. Sometimes you might find yourself in a dilemma when trapped with a problem, which your heart rather than your head needs to solve.
How true is this?
You tell me ;)

They can't fucking drive.
If a Toyota Paseo which is only a 1.5l engine can win a sports car, it's either the ones driving the Silvia is damn fucking lousy, or the one driving the Paseo has mad skills.
What do you think?
p.s. I drive a Paseo ;)

Funny? Yes? No?
Me: "Your lunch smells really good. What is it?"
E: "Tuna casserole. Want some?"
Me: "I can't. Still on a vegetarian diet."
E: "So no fish?"
Me: "Nothing that breathes and moves"
E: "But plants breathe, and they grow."
Me: "Nothing that moves on its own free will"
E: "I can't think of any vegetables that move on its own free will"
Me: "That's why it's called a vegetable"
Maybe it was his facial expression that cracked me up XD

New place is huge and cool. But really empty as I do not have money for furniture... yet.
Had to deal with a few issues, regarding a certain someone. Actually there's more than 1 but hey, I'll get through this.
Did I offend anyone? Or did I do something to make someone feel as if I was referring to them?
Or did I really did just appear in your mind?
I hate myself for feeling like this.

You guys know how much I support Nuffnang and how excited I was when I knew Nuffnang was coming to Australia. So, when there's a Nuffnang meet in Perth, HOW CAN I NOT GO LA?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
One co-founder down, one more to go XD
From the left, William, Eugene, Me, Martyn, Mesha and 2 of the youngest bloggers at the meet (sorry I forgot your names).
I talked to alot of new people that night and had fun. Was rather nervous about going because I didn't know anyone but it turned out great.
And proof that Perth is so damn fucking small, Mesha, the first blogger I talked to at the meet is a friend's friend.
I really hope Nuffnang will have more events in Perth... it seems to be the forgotten city of Australia, we keep getting left out of everything =(
So yea, if you have a blog and you're not with Nuffnang, do sign up & join the community ^^

I know I have not updated for a while, but there's soooooooooooooooooo many pictures in this post, so please forgive me okay?
love hanging around in your face...
Stopped somewhere near the Margaret River town for a picnic lunch and flies decided to be the uninvited guests.
Pay to work for them -____-
Was kinda disappointed because my Tourism lecturer had praised this place so much but it was not up to expectation. Oh well...
Then we went to Mammoth Cave, which was such a great place to escape the heat. It was so cooling inside.
There's an alien-like figure in the picture sitting alone.
That's all the pictures I have of this trip. Hope you guys enjoyed the pictures, that was a really long post!
I'm glad things are well between us. And that's all that matters.
