A Longwinded List of Thank yous

And now is the moment for me to give all my sincere thanks to various people who’ve lent a hand when I was in dire need of while working on my final year project.

So heeeeere goes:

Jason Chee – For being such a chummy pal and offering invites to dinner supper class etc etc. I hate being sentimental but you’re probably the one friend who bothers initiating an online conversation and sharing stuff with me. Thanks chum! I’ll try to spot your birthday announcement on Facebook.

Sim – Lending me cash and allowing me to return slowly. I’m sorry I keep asking it back HAHAHA. And for accompanying me out for breathers when we couldn’t take the stress anymore.

Celine – Invite for dinner and movie but I declined. All wrong timing. But in the end, Prince Caspian tak jadi also right!

Liana – For being gracious every time and injecting laughs during sessions together by making fun of Teo.

Auds – For lending an ear. For supper. For CD covers and graciously helping me mend the silap typo on them. For organizing on campfire blog. For talking and helping to convince me that things might work out even when it’s almost like a cold case.

Brian and Ai Lin – For making me feel so incompetent and lowly, and because of that I shall strive harder. Coz your work damn awesome can! Oh yeah, Brian for CD burning, One night pc lending and loadMovie. Hahahaha. And buffet seafood and Iron Man!!!

Teo – For being Jarvis and yourself. You have saved a lot of lives assuming multiple personalities. When do you want Alive 07 wei. Thanks for loadMovie too.

Johnson – Can never thank you enough la. You lent your killer machine for me to render so many times until I paiseh like crazy, even though you had your own work to do. For dimsum too, coz I’ve never had a nice food session for a while now. Being around different people was kinda refreshing. I’ve got no qualms about semi deep lol.

Marwan – For your laptop. It. saved. my. life. With your laptop at hand, I have truly recognized the power of multitasking. Render while doing flash, RERENDER while doing flash. And the unconditional support. Here is one generous Middle Eastern dude with a goatee crushing people’s misconceptions of arabs and terrorist. lol kidding. You often make a fool out of yourself too. By the way, I’d love to see the final product of the Padi sessions. 😀

Ivan – There was a week when my computer died and your external hd saved the day. Damn trojan fucked up my operating system and I had to reformat. You were really helpful by coming over and helping me check out what went wrong with the old Buttercup.

Afiq – For being hilarious and really nice in filling in the details of conversations and inside jokes.

Dwong – For being a gentleman and driving us to dimsum and accompanying me back to my block. I haven’t had people escorting me back for a long time that I felt happy! Didn’t see you much during fyp though. 😦

Calvin – For scaring the shit out of my pants with the Alma impersonation. I don’t think I can forget the way you made those creepy sounds and giving a very very visually stimulating description of the whole scenario. For being a gentleman. I think I feel like playing Rainbow Six too. Shit.

Haze – For offering your pc to render as well. It was almost a render farm la hahahaha. It was good hanging out with you at night by the playground coz I’ve never had a decent conversation with you since everybody’s being consumed alive by final year assignments. If you’re reading this, do pass me the link for the fashion forum you visited. I heart!

Vinn – Render also. I really felt quite paiseh asking for your help coz I never really talked to you and there I was asking for your favor. Thanks for layaning, though I wish I got to know you better.

Boyfriend – For dinners. For conversations. For outings. For laughs. For being patient. For being REALLY patient. For trying to iron out the kinks.

Dad – For being totally and amazingly understanding. I was awestruck by paternal love. Mum – For letting me get what I want when I go home for breaks. For being understanding. For caring. A lot. For making me realise time and again that my family will always be there for me unconditionally.

Juin – For being mature and understanding and still fun to be with. For tolerating my nasty sister remarks. Xhen – For being an awful prat just to get at me and for being nice once in a while.

Tastes Like Mood Swings

I… wanna shop online for clothes but I’m too broke now. There are so many things I wanna buy! The off shoulder, the black dress, the skirt…

Off Shoulder

Black Dress

Blue Skirt

o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o *drools* But again, I’m too broke and the skirt’s sold out.

Today’s a power day coz I slept at 7am, woke up after 4 hours and trotted off to the bus stop to go home and see my mama. Yesssssh, I miss hoooooome! All the insecurities and anxieties just washed away like observing the traffic road lines on a high speed. RANDOM SIMILE. Anyway, I specified in the above paragraph that I was penniless so I didn’t manage to get a present for Mother’s Day. So when I got home and wished Happy Mother’s Day to dear mummy, I apologized that I brought no gifts to commemorate the day. But you know what, mummy said, “Never mind la, it’s okay. You coming back even for a short while is better than sending a present back instead.” BAWLS. I felt so happy to be home even though my brother was teasing me the whole time I was back. Curiously, I’ve never felt so homesick in my entire four years spent living in Cyberjaya than I do now that I’m about to leave that god forsaken place.

I Heart Rakuzen

Oh oh oh, I went to eat at Rakuzen (Plaza Damas branch) last week when the family went to celebrate my cousin brother’s birthday!

Upon arriving, we had to wait for half an hour before we got our tables… Damn sad right! Everybody had to wait for a table when we’re all so hungry and it’s past 8! I haven’t eaten lunch yet wei!

When we finally got our table, we were led through this labyrinth of a restaurant. You see, the entrance is kinda small, but the interior is awesome! Too bad I didn’t have a camera with me at the moment, else I could have put up pictures here on how awesome the interior is! Heart heart heart! *Eyes go sparkly*

I ordered a Cod fish meal called Grilled silver cod with teriyaki sauce. Aunt ordered the same but had the salty sauce instead while i had the sweet one. Dunno don’t ask why and what’s the difference. Ask the chef. I’m pretty noob on Japanese cuisine. The rest had eel, chicken teriyaki and salmon. I dunno their exact names! Too long, exotic and fancy. Or maybe it’s just me and my amnesiac brain. The fishes were fresh and I was so filled to the brim coz besides the slab of cod I had, I also downed the fruits, the chawan mushi, the miso soup, half the saucer of pickles, california temaki, my slice of my cousin’s birthday cake, half HIS slice of his own birthday cake, some cold siew bak choy and dunno what other aphrodisiacs. *burp*

Everything was fine and dandy, just that the kitchen and the waitress taking our orders seemed to keep fucking up our orders. Firstly, my aunt made the mistake of ordering salmon without consulting the menu. When it arrived, it was fresh… and raw. Cousin couldn’t eat raw, so poor salmon was sent back to the kitchen to be cooked. Then they made a mistake of delivering two cod fish with sweet teriyaki sauce when we only ordered one. Then then right! They served the chicken teriyaki with garlic rice instead of plain rice when the garlic rice was a side order ordered by my mum. (See the chicken teriyaki set was supposed to come with plain rice, then later they charged us for the plain rice and said we ordered 2 garlic rice.So confusing!) Then when we ordered california temaki to takeaway for my poor other brother who was stuck in tuition and couldn’t attend this glorious feast, they gave us california maki (the diced up version) and charged us double the price of the temaki we originally ordered! Damn fucked up right?! All the orders wrong like nuts!

In the end I had to go through the bill to double check everything coz everything was so wrong. What if we paid for something that we didn’t even order? The bill was not cheap either. Everything we ate cost RM300 plus, even the bowl of plain rice which they wrongly charged us cost RM3! If I don’t check can die. RM3 can buy me a complete meal of rice, vegie, chicken and tofu (if you hide the tofu under the vegie well, teehee) at the Cyberia chinese food shop.

Ok la, the food was great, despite all the culinary mishaps. I was surprised that dad actually said the food was great. He’s never into Japanese food and now he likes it, wonder of wonders. And! He never intended to order the eel dish and now he’s saying the eel is fresh and not bad and we should go back and eat again next time. Nice then say nice, don’t say not bad. Wanna compliment then don’t be so stingy with it.

So, everybody’s happy and we lived happily ever after. Riiiiiight. Too bad no photos, else I can upload it here and show off the interiors and the food presentation. Salivating!

In Progress

Inquisitive Balloon

Today started out as a slow morning, coupled with a slight drizzle throughout the whole day with rain pouring every now and then. I was slow, inefficient and L-E-T-H-A-R-G-I-C…. *groans*

On another note, I can’t wait for my aunt to start moving into her new house! Landed property! What are the odds of her buying landed property! She’s still busy furnishing the house, from her bed, the kitchen hood, her bathroom to her garden. I’ll have to start thinking of a housewarming gift! (I’m thinking along the lines of a painting or a decorative piece of some sort)

Till then, I’ll slog over work and post up some works now and then. 🙂 “Here’s lookin’ at ya!” says the Green Balloon!
