Lessons in Life - Learnt from a stray

Today, a stray puppy was given to us in Malaysia.
This small little bundle of joy which has brown and white patches on its fur, is called Harry... after Harry Potter.. since he has a similar lightning design of white fur down its brown head.

Harry is a smart little dog. Despite being new to the house, he knows how to please people to feed him, and whines when no one gives him any attention.

Here's a pic of him being bottle fed, when we taught that he wasnt old enough to lick milk off plates:

Anyway, what i learnt from this is that sometimes in life, its not about your parentage... you need not be a pedigree pure bred.. or born from a rich royal family to get along well with people. Harry is just one fine good example!

Cool coconuts

A hot day in Malaysia, after all the visiting and stuff..


nothing beats a drink of cool coconuts... This coconut tree is planted by my aunt...
and we harvested a bunch of coconuts to savour the sweet juice and young flesh of the fruit.

CNY greetings from Malaysia!

2nd day of new year was spent in Malaysia.



Back at my grandmum's place.



The festive mood there is much greater then in Singapore..



Can actually see fire crackers and fire works lighting up the sky from the backyards of homes.



Its a typical kampong CNY! Here's a scene of sunset taken at the kampong..
note the hanging lanterns... and its not even Chinatown!

Celebrating CNY with a loud bang... literally!

Was waiting for the traffic light to change in my favour at a traffic junction today after visiting some of my relatives.

When i heard a loud bang. In the direction of the sound, 2 taxis had collided into each other, with the rear cab smashing into the boot of the taxi in front.

It was a sudden impact that just caught everyone by surprise.

thankfully, i wasnt the one in front of the taxi that failed to stop..

Scandal: Traffic wardens abuse authority to eat BREAKFAST?

Watch this clip that is fast making its rounds on YouTube!


Can you imagine this?

Traffic warden says that they are doing their duty by parking along the double yellow lines and having breakfast at a nearby coffeeshop???

No wonder the lines are double yellow lines... why? cos it means double standards!

SP JAE!

Today marks the day of JAE where my duty for the Joint Poly Adminstration Excercise (JAE) starts from 2.30 - 5.30pm. Ya... basically, volunteered cos my group was featured on the news and all!

Coincidentally, its the release of the O level results, thus the crowd at the venue was pretty little.

Giving me the opportunity to walk around and sit down to chat around with some teachers.

Time really flies, I remember in 2004, I went down to SP to find out more about the Food Technology course, and my lecturer explained the course outlines to me.

School's over... friendship too?

Today was the last day of the papers.

I was overcome by a mixture of emotions today.

It could be the end of school life, but the sense and feeling of uncertainty has started to begin.

Somehow or rather, I feel that the so called 'friendships' forged during my school days in SP are just mere facades, when school ends and we dont see each other anymore.. how many people will actually take the iniative to contact and send their regards?

Mine confused, I went to do my CNY shopping today.. bought a pair of Hush Puppies Shoes as well as a shirt from Takashimaya...

Tried this Japanese curry set dinner at Curry Flavour near Capitol Cinema area... good curry!

Half way thru exams...

Yep... with Nutrition over... it's 2 down.. 2 more to go..
still mugging...
its going to be over soon..

kinda having mixed feeling that school life will be over soon. while i feel happy at the same time, it feels sad to leave the friendships that i have forged behind.. all the teasing, squabbling and lessons.

Did a simple music video which has a graduation theme for my class.. spent like 1/2 hour on it... hope the class will enjoy it. hehe
