28th of November is THE DATE to remember!

Yes it is. Why?

Because I'll be coming back home on that day. This time, I'll be back for 3 months. Will only be flying off on the 26th of Feb 2011.

Penang.....My hometown!!!

Oh boy,I just can't wait that day!Think of the time I'll be reunited with my family, friends and dog,think of the food I'll be eating, think of my lovely Penang, think of.....Malaysia? Do I think of Malaysia?


Malaysia.....the country that made me who I am today.

I love my country and I'm proud to be a Malaysian. Not in a boastful way, but more of an appreciation of where I belong.

Seriously, u will never appreciate something so much until u don't have it anymore. Just like I start to appreciate home more when I am away from home. Similarly, I start to appreciate Malaysia when I am away from Malaysia.

All I can say is no country is perfect. Every country has its own problems, every country has its own bad points. Even here in Australia. I can honestly say there are certain things here that I disagree and dislike. Similarly, there are things that I disagree and dislike about Malaysia.

But,I can conclude that Malaysia isn't the worst place to live. Yes, Malaysia is not a 1st world country,lots of political dramas going on and there are plenty of areas that Malaysia needs to improve on. But, there are also reasons for Malaysians to be proud of.

For example:
  • Most Malaysians can speak at least 3 languages. English and Malay is certain, plus at least a chinese/indian/local dialect. There are no other nationalities that can do that.
  • Apart from Malays, Malaysians are the only people in the world that do not use their national language to communicate.
  • 24 hrs Mamak stalls, hawker stalls everywhere which opens from morining till night, cheap good food, shopping centres are open during weekends and public holidays.....What more can u ask for? U don't get it in western countries. NO WAY.
We should always be thankful and proud of where we come from. If you're not Malaysian, u should be proud of your country too!

Be thankful, and be proud! =)

Culture Shock.

3 days ago, I went to Woolworths(supermarket) with my housemate to buy some stuff. Since there was no one in the house, she brought her dog along and left in the car while we went shopping. Well, we weren't really shopping actually....just having a quick shop on some food that were on sale. When we came back to the car, we saw this......

A little piece of paper on the car screen.

Wanna have a look at the paper?

Someone wrote this to us.

Tell me, where can u experience this in Malaysia? LOL.

Drivers in Malaysia are reckless enough, we wouldn't really care if a dog is in the car or not. As long as the driver park his car properly, put his signal while turning, we're more than happy.

Different culture eh? People here are super animal lovers, and everyhing here has rights.Human rights,children rights,animal DON'T PLAY PLAY!!!

Winter is coming. OH NOOO!!!!!

The days have been getting colder. Rainy, gloomy. Sunset is getting earlier and earlier. Now at 6pm, u can't see the sun anymore and u already feel so......sad? Not really sad, but that kind of winter feeling.

The hot water is not working well in my house. Has called the plumber countless of times to fix it. Still, it seems like the water is just in winter mood as well. Have been a few times that I showered cold water. Terrible!!!

It's 1 month's time to winter and I'm just not looking forward to it.

So why do some people like winter so much?

Don't ask me. I have no idea. Seriously, there's nothing to look forward to in winter, especially in Adelaide where there is no snow. HOW BORING. You can't go out, u can't play sports, u can't go to the beach, u can't do anything!!!

Except for eating like a pig, sleeping like a pig and....Oh ya!!!ROMANCING.....*Ulala*.....

I think winter is a romantic season as people always fall in love during the winter season for some reasons. Some say that because it's a cold weather, people find love to "warm" themselves? Haha.....

Think about all the romantic movies and dramas, it's kinda true. Most of them are related to winter season/ cold weather. Think of movies such as Titanic, cartoons such as Beauty And The Beast and Anastasia, all those Korean Dramas......It's funny isn't it?

Nah.....Romance is not for me yet. I'm enjoying my singlehood and loving it. It's a blessing to be single now because I know in a few years time, I will not be able to enjoy that "singlehood" lifestyle anymore for the rest of my life. Of course, there's always a possibility because life is so unpredictable, but let's just assume things go according to plan. So.....I wanna enjoy them while I still can!!!=D

Wait.Why did I suddenly talk about this? Nevermind.

Planning to travel to Melbourne and Sydney this coming July. Not sure yet, but just feel like visiting other states of Aussie. Will keep u guys updated when I have decided.

Cheers peeps!=)
