before Christmas!!! YahooOO!!!

i’ll be driving ALONE >.< back to Lawas this afternoon. Been asking the students or anyone going back to Lawas if they wanna join me. But till this very moment, no respond at all. I guess they all have their own ways already T___T sigh~~ THREE FREAKING HOURS lerrr…..

but anyway, a quick update before i indulge fully to the festive final preparation (which i volunteered to offer the easiest contribution – to sponsor drinks beverages!!! LOL)

done with my assignment to capture my friend's wedding last week. which was my one and only wedding of the year. was on my heels all day. yes i am that vain!! must live up to my status as 'the photog in heels' and 'glamorous photog' (i know i perasan here but that’s what they say lerrr….. they said ‘wah, your photographer so glamor wan? -__-” so i’ll just take it as a compliment la, can?) after the event my feet sore like they were not gonna make it to press on the accelerator when driving home. and the next morning, my right arm also sore and ached due to lugging my heavy gears. but all were good because I LOVE MY FREE LANCE JOB as much as i love my day job!!! 🙂

my excitement grows day by day as the days passed. in four more days, i’ll be on top of Malaysia’s highest peak. i can say that i’m all set and ready physically and mentally. i’ve been lobbying some friends to join me a month ago. many wanna climb but mostly cant make it at this time of the year. i dont blame them. some of them want to celebrate Christmas and some needs extra time to pump up their stamina. as my friend said, ‘only ppl as crazy as you will go for the climb during this festive season!’ tet!! so that left me with 3 other crazies!! 2 guy friends and my sister. haha!! dragged her last minute :p cos my gf Jane couldnt make it although she had tried all ways to get her leaves approve that includes trying to ‘bribe’ her colleague. LOL!! my sis and i will drive to KK right after Christmas service on 25th and meet up with the 2 boys. and the next day we all will venture up the legendary Mount Kinabalu!!! I. CANNOT. WAIT!!!!

so by now you should know that my excitement towards the climb is more than the excitement to celebrate Christmas. LOL!!

i only started packing last night. dang!!! the jacket alone has occupied half of my luggage bag. but thank goodness i’ve mastered the art of packing (both in short time and maximizing space) i managed to squeeze in everything i need. and at the same time, i was also decluttering my room. that’s when i found a lot of random, weird and funny stuff in between everything that’s in the drawers, the wardrobe, on the desk and side table. LOL!! the most random things so far were two wind chimes i bought from Langkawi and a Gangway ID from my job onboard Otto 3 barge a year ago!!! hahaha!!! i will blog about that in another post. promise!

i guess this all for now. The Boyfriend just asked what i want for Christmas and Birthday present. i am still considering….. :p he mentioned a new lens 😀 but…. i’ll think about it kekeke….. *tamak*

so to all my dear readers, in case i wont have the time to blog again during this festive season here

WISHING ALL OF YOU AWESOME PEOPLE A JOLY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012!!!

be blessed, always!

xoxo

I’m not dead, I’m just lazy

Ola! The title says it all. I’m just plain lazy nowadays that I don’t even log in to this pitiful blog *pats blog lovingly* i have tried many times to update but alas once i just about to start words failed me. i had my writer’s block and i rather browse through other blogs and wander aimlessly on my FB. and for your info i have a training materials need to be done a.s.a.p but look at me. blogging instead. it’s just so frustrating that when i am suppose to do one thing, i will do another. sigh! there have been many things going around me since my last update. some very heart breaking and confusing and stressful and eat-all-my-energy things and situation that I wish no one will ever experience. I almost ALMOST experience a regret of a life time if not for some miracle. MIRACLE! I kid you not. and i am forever thankful for that one HUGE chances God has given to the situation. really. if wasnt for it i will live the rest of my life with regret IT. IS. THAT. SCARY. SERIOUSLY. i wished for more time. but who am I to rebel His will. when the time’s up. one must go. nothing in this world could stop His timely time. ~ that day, i learned regret is the worst feeling a human could ever feel.

then i waited in silence. i knew. you knew what’s gonna happend next. we knew what’s the question next. but we chose to stay silent with a lump in our throath in every conversations. then i realised this is what we have in common. escape. ~ that day, i learned that silence has sound it can be the loudest cry it is deafening.

enough with cryptic emo writing. so i returned from my most recent trip to Bali. it was a great relaxing trip with my gf jane. one of the most random and short decision on impulse trip i ever had. i just wanted to get away and to see Bali again. and to buy my giraffes! ~ that day, i learned that ignorance is bliss!!

a sneak peek.

helllo there all!!
yeap!!
that’s where i am now.
it’s winter here but there’s no snow (unless u go to the mountain)
but it’s gonna be the first day of spring tomorrow.
just wanna wish everyone a Happy Merdeka Day.
btw, it was Melbourne Day yesterday.
hmmm…. i dunno what else i wanna type.
tomorrow will be my last day here before i fly back midnight 😦
the yarra valley is on the list tomorrow and bad news is the weatherman said that it’s gonna rain tomorrow 😦
but i hope the wine tasting will keep us warm despite the rain.
thank God that the weather was on our side since the first day we reached till today.
but although it was sunny the wind was super chilly especially today when we saw the penguins…. grrrr…
nevertheless i like the weather 🙂
u see ppl training / jog around the park at odd hours of 10am-2pm.
wth, with weather so cool like this i would probably do that too. anytime.
and whoever jog at that hours in malaysia will surely die of dehydration.
anyhoo, it’s about celebrating the bday of our country today so i shall talk about good things about it.
like, errmmm… we have abundant supply of chillies!!!! LOL!!
i hardly find chilli here T___T even sauce for the chips they only have tomato sauce.
k lah that’s all that i can think of right now.
ppl here are polite and kind and friendly which i so wish malaysian would be too. pls…

my time is limited.
so here’s a toast for our Independent Day!!

p/s: i so wanted to post some pics but like i said i have so limited time so stay tune….

with love,

Bali: statues, monuments and colourful streets….

If you ask me what is the distinctive thing about bali that i remember after two and half month have passed? it would be their fervent for rock statues and their culture that is still held strong by the local folks…. the monuments were outstanding. the people there were one of a kind and steadfast to their beliefs despite the island is being over commercialised and too business-like nowadays. The folks still wear their traditional costume (especially the ladies young and old) to the temple with offerings in their basket which were carried on their head!! you will hardly see a house without a business signboard or anything to sell in front of it. be it a salon or simply an eating place, there must be a business going on. in ubud, almost every single house was transformed into a shop selling all kinds of local products. these shop houses were their home!

Ubud is well knows of its painting and wood sculptures. the wooden sculptures or furnitures with good woods that we buy in Msia (esp in Miri, Swk) for RM400 or more can be bought at RM150 there….. hisk!! talking bout this make me pissed!! cos i forgot to buy my Giraffes!!! T_T huhuhuhuuu……

ok now, stop crapping. here are some of the unique monuments and the many random shots that i captured along the way on the streets of Bali. u can scroll down very fast if u like :p
