Last Time

Coincidental or fated, i came back to KL on the right date (19/7 Mon). Everything was the same.

Nothing was out of the norm, Kong Kong, my grandfather was his normal self, healthy and the typical Chinese grandparent: He'd always ask me to eat and drink tea

All of a sudden he was weak on Friday night and i woke up on Saturday morning when my mom told me he passed on. That night, i stayed up late to 'accompany my grandpa' by sitting near the coffin, burning 'hell money' till late.

I felt hungry and went to see if there was any food in the fridge. Its weird, we normally cover food with a plate but for some reason the plate fell off, making a bowl of noodles visible to me at one glance

Friday afternoon was like any other, i was online and my grandpa walked up the stairs (yeah, that healthy), he saw me and said that his lunch was too much, so he put aside some and told me to eat it. I looked up and said okay without giving it much thought

Little did i know that was the last time i'd have a doting grandpa. It took me ages to bring myself to microwave the noodles on Saturday night, cried as i ate it slowly

Cousins recently got a pair of rabbits, a cage and a house. On Sunday morning, my aunt n cousins went out and i was eating my lunch at home. Suddenly i saw the little rabbits hopping around!

They are sooooo cute!!! I called up my aunt to see if they were allowed to run around or if the rabbits 'escaped'. Its the latter. So i went out to catch them.

The small one was so cute!!! When i went out, he hopped to my feet! Awww

The big one scratched me though... he didnt wanna go back into the house

Fishing Village

After this, we passed by the Sihanoukville Port

Reminds me of Port Klang in Malaysia

Sa, our tuttut driver, told us that we there's a fishing village at the port and proceeded to take us there for a look

Village. Yamaha motorbikes that are common in developing countries like Cambodia and Malaysia, you dont see them in Australia

Bustling strip of shops look pretty on that sunny November day.

Locals go about their everyday life

Arriving at the dock, where they build and repair ships, it was quite a beautiful sight to me

Sa took a picture for us. The ship builders were looking at us. A little uncomfortable but chose to ignore and continue with our camwhoring and photography session

Unusual. I have never been to a place where they make ships and to be there felt cool

Boat for charter. Sa's spoken English is not bad. The Cambodian language is in characters and not in alphabets. He read out "Boat for...." he didnt know how to pronounce 'charter', i completed the sentence for him and told him it means for rent

The old lady was terribly hunching and she walked funny... couldnt help but stare a little. Hmm... i need to take good care of myself

Sue Lin at 23. Happy, vibrant, soaking up the sun, life wasn't perfect then but i was content, i thought i had a future with E...

Wooden piere, locals chatting among themselves

Fishing boat

Bestfriends. Friends for 24 year and i wonder... friends forever?


Passed by a school. Hmm, they wear slippers to school. We are to wear white shoes and socks in Msia. In Aust, my cousins wear Nike!

Chit chat as i went to buy bottled water. He waited for us while we packed up and then brought us to the town where we were to board a taxi he arranged for us

Full Driver's Licence

Passed on second attempt =)

I am the sort of person who tells others about my failures so that everyone else can learn from it

I failed the first time because i did not wait for the flashing lights at the train crossing to go off completely. It doesnt matter if the boomgates are up, it doesn't matter if the train has passed 1 minute ago, u have to wait there like an idiot until ALL lights are off, then u can drive. By driving too early (while the lights are still flashing), it was an automatic fail

Friends for 10years and counting, PL is visiting Melbourne! Been meeting up almost everyday for the past week =)

She asked me what is there to do in Melbourne city (besides shop, which we DID do quite a fair bit of)

I suggested the Como Historic House and Garden and was surprised that both she and KW were interested

I passed by the signboard by chance and was keen on going

I thought i was gonna have to go alone but hey, its so much more fun with company =)

We picked Sunday, had a nice chit chat session in Kokoblack (and i tripped down the stairs) before heading to Como.

Original fountain. We arrived there just in time for the 2pm house tour.

Thats the back of the house, we aren't allowed to take pictures inside. It was a really small tour group, just the three of us and a couple, so no sneaking photos.

Fully furnished, the house was sold to National Trust for historic conservation. It felt like we went back a century, to those Victorian days of drawing rooms, fireplace with mechanical bells to summon the servants, chaperon rooms and a ballroom complete with a grand piano and a chandelier... It was amazing!

Veggie garden still in use today

So lush n green

Vibrant unique orange flowers in the garden

Directed her to play the bitchy role. Glares at each other
Friends again, on the lawn at the front of Como house.

In the woods, with some wood...

Like my elf boots? Forever New, 2007 collection! Hahah, so old! Dress from Ice in Habour Town, 3 for $10 =) Leggings: Cotton On. Jackets borrowed.

Haircut !

In some pictures i can cheat the camera into thinking my super long hair is pretty

But usually, its hard to wear, looks flat. So one fine day, i wanted to be spontaneous, took a pair of scissors and snipped off 4 inches!

Not bad at all, who knew i had skill in cutting my own hair? Smiling and patting myself on the back for a job well done

Above, before

After. Use my elbows are benchmarks

Before. Seductive?

After, quirky n fun-lovin'?

Before testing my skills

After finding out that i rock with a pair of scissors! And also after changing my top.

Locks. A year ago, i dyed my hair red on my own

By the way, i passed my fourth paper! =)

Earlier this week, i was worried cuz it was stated that my final paper is unconfirmed. Now that it says enrolled, i'm happy =) One to go!
