Summer!!

Australian summer that is. Not that it makes any difference to me, here in Malaysia, where it is rain and sunshine all fricking year round. But i love Australian summers. Cuz i'm taking an Australian degree. So i get a holiday too!!!

Then why haven't i blogged until now?

Naturally, if u knew the pig in me, i slept early on Friday. At 9pm or so. And on Saturday morning there was no electricity. And in the afternoon i discovered my computer died on me. And of course procrastination(read other blogs) yesterday night and SHOPPING today(Sunday), hehehe. Then had period pain...


Shopping

Shopping with mommy this time, after she showed me the way to my future workplace. She had a RM200.00 voucher (which she obtained through her talent in joining contests with slogans =). So i got a pair or heels!! =) Freeeeeee.

I can imagine the shopaholic Ch asking me for pictures! =) I still owe her a post on those pants... =P Sorry, girl!

Here's a pic of those heels.


Finals

Ok ok... i know i can't avoid writing about my final paper so... the paper made me sick to the stomach. Literally, had an upset stomach twice that morning. My eyelids felt so heavy, That's what u get for studying last minute till 5am. My friends, D and Ce weren't so great either. Ce had an allergy, caused by nervousness or something. D kept saying the D-word, DIE. I dunno how many times she said that over the phone, in messages and when she came over to study... freaked me out!! =)

So the paper itself... do u remember taking physics in SPM? Well, it was like that, so many calculations. And u never know if u've got the nominator and denominator right. You know, the pengaka and the ... angka? Err... the word looks weird... my BM is rotten to the core... angka? Is that correct?

Nevermind. So. Calculations. I did read all lectures concerning calculations. I did all tutorial work concerning calculations, i love calculation. So why am i so afraid of how i'd fare in this paper? I love calculations the add maths style, I don't like the physics kind. Why a finance subject's calculation reminds me of psychics i don't know... maybe because there are so many words in the question?

Sigh. Well it's over. Have to thank the kind souls who wished me luck. And also love love love the people who replied when i wish them luck, they made me happy and i feel appreciated. No comments about those who didn't bother to reply.


Work

Holidays for 4 weeks. 2 of which would be spent working for an IT company in a classy area. Pay's good. But expenses kill. The darn office building is 20km or so away from home. And parking is shitty shit shit... Comes up to RM17+. A day.

"Then why don't u take the bus u spoilt brat". Gag... Haha... come on, i've had my fair share of buses and trains. Hear me out. I'm driving there and parking in far far away for free and am gonna walk. Besides, my baby(car) doesn't eat that much (petrol).

Food in the area's gonna be expens$sive too. But there's a McD!!! Yay, u know i love McD, isn't exactly cheap, but relatively cheap.

The kinda work i'd be doing: telemarketing is what they call it. I sit in front of the computer and make calls to other companies to 'create awareness' and to 'update information'.


CD

Last but not least, look at this!! =)


I won it on my own from the Hitz.fm cruisers!!

Was just leaving university when E and i heard the announcement on the radio... ther were right outside the Monash University side gate!! We made a u-turn and managed to get a parking spot. There were people already gathering around the cruiser, waiting eagerly for freebies and a chance to win stuff.

That week's CD giveaway was tATu. No one was really interested except me and Is... until the guy said "Let's put it this way, who wants to win a free CD?" and then more people stepped up.

We had to play this game... way back from primary school called 'lat-tali-lat'... and it goes lat-tali-lat-ta-li-tam-plong. Haha, funny actually writing it out. It's a sing-along thing and u kind of... wave(?) your hand to show your palm or your... the... other side of your hand as u sing. We had to match what the cruiser guy did.

Since i distinctively remember reading about the exact game being played in E's blog months ago (He won RM50 worth of KFC voucher), i followed his tactic. Right thing to do! In the second round, i found myself the winner!! =) It's fated to be mine! Muahaha.
Note: E, if u can give me the link to that post, i'd love to link to it.

Listened to tATu while studying Trade Finance and Foreign Exchange.


Note: The heels and the CD aside ... i've lost before, many times... there was the IPod contest, which is worth much more than a CD. Then there's the RM5000 which i didn't win... and i HAVE taken the bus and trains before, for 2 whole years to be exact... can continue upon request.

Correction(10.20pm 2005-11-14): We had to do the opposite of what the cruiser guy did. Sorry! I was really blur at that time, i didn't really know what i was doing... and was really surprised i won.
