5 girls, 3 1/2 days, a city, and 5 spilling waistlines.

Yes we ate. And shopped. I love the break from doing sightseeing during trips. Say no to cathedrals and museums!!

After that we hit the pub in Hilton. The place overlooked whole of manchester. Think Luna Bar. A covered version:P

We were prolly the most covered up ppl in the whole place wth. We left class and headed for Manc and never changed ever since. EWwwwwwwww…

21 Nov

overslept again.

I SWEAR with all my heart i wanted to attend 1 hour of lecture today.

Instead, i woke up to find that i only have 10 mins to get ready before meeting my supervisor. Was suppose to print my graph and show him but didnt managed to. Haha. That depicts how enthusiastic i am about my research:P

DId a LIL shopping today. Cos it was Hari Kebesaran Shianyi. Sales were everywhere, so i decided to join in the fun. I better keep myself confined in my room next time.haha.

Oh and before i forget,

A day in Nott

10 Nov

I envy those who get to experience autumn full blast in Nottingham. Or anywhere else in the world.

For those in Glasgow, before the poor leaves had the chance to turn yellow or brown, they were all ripped off by the ferocious wind/gale.  And now it hails. Having sunlight now is like waiting for the rain to come during draught.

Randomness on our way there.


flo and her book


some slept


some was busy socializing


i was caught paparazzing lieo juiuns hot spanish hsemate:P


Miss Ginger


His considered normal pose




we were lost. we were not participating. the opening ceremony was over. and then we saw pretty trees. so well u know what happens next.LOL. random pics ahead


img_1349at the football match.

such avid supporters we were.

rain or shine


with frozen legs


frozen hands


we stood by our teams.

LOL. ACTUALLY, it started raining and we took off to makan wth. Apparently the sun came out right after we left wth.


the guys in action…..

img_1373alvin bertungkus lumus. a very rare sight.LOL


whoa! Ken can kick ball

img_1426Jase sending the ball to opponent? ngek ngek

img_1430loudao so yeng wan. Macam tarian melayu

basically, even though they lost, it doesnt matter. At least they did put up a good fight 🙂


Lunch at the cafeteria was the highlight of the whole day. We ate nasi lemak, nasi ayam rempah, cucur udang, satay, curry puffs, cendol, etc etc. so happy omg *big wet eyes*


we then adjourned to the volleyball court to watch our team in action. they made it to semi finals. but were thrown against last years champ, the notts team. But we were so good the score was neck to neck. The referee sucked like hell. Lost 1 point cos of his absentmindedness. And that one point cost us at least a silver. It was so damn kanceong ok. It was a superb game nevertheless!



the kanceong supporters

After that some hit the city centre and some took off to meet their frens. Some of us just stayed back and lepaked around. We were too tired and too lazy. But all we did was only scream and camwhore. LOL

I must say i like the overall huge campus-ish feeling in general but i wouldnt give up the convenience of running to aldi when im short of eggs or my 10mins walk to buchanan when i need a new bag:P

long overdue

13 Sep

Just realised that ive not blogged about my 3rd day in London which was EONS ago, i know, was tied down with exams and classes. It was still worth mentioning anyways.

We went to see the LINE in Greenwich (pronounced greenich) Yes its THE line. The line we learnt about back in secondary school. The  famous meridien line where people from all over the world came to see and camwhore with. The Prime Meridien that separates the world to East and West. We had to line up to take pics with the line, which is freaking long. Of course must camwhore kao kao lar:P

We took a break from trains and had the boat ride along River Thames to our destination. The guide on the boat was funny and witty so the ride was worth it. And one thing, we sure went under lots of bridges. i lost count of how many. And the buildings at the bank of the river are all so different, its like they have their own personality and story to tell. The guide was good at describing all the amazing architecture we saw along the way but too bad my retention capacity was only like 30%. Blame my puny brain.

the famous line

found kL

24 hr clock

some pointer that got us excited

we walked, and walked, and found a patch of grass.

then the nonsense began…

found a quaint icecream place and had our teatime there..

flo the potential pedophile:P

Us and big ben

found some malaysians at westminster abbey

ex cheerleaders.LOL.i look like beruang here.

that roughly summed up our last day in london long time ago. Im definitely going back there:)

Cant wait for Italy and Paris this sunday. Gonna be so drained after 11 days.

Had my first training in Subway today. Didnt know sandwich making can be an art. It was an enlightenement:P

Wish me luck in balancing plates in CItyHall tmr. Adios. Cheers~~~

Happy hols everyone!!!

of this and that

7 Sep

It was part of the summer itinery i presume. But we were all so caught up with school work and exams we never found time to attend pub nights on wednesday organised by Jim Wilson. Until 3 days back. Now that exams are officially over, and jobless, we decided to give the pub night a go.

It was held in Soho this week. Flo said Committee Room was much better.

When we walked in it was kinda awkward. Evrything was hushed and everybody looked up for awhile before they resumed with their conversation. It was weird. But at least we got their attention. Even for just a minute:P

Said hi to Mr Jim Wilson and found a cosy spot. We were obviously the sesated group there. And it doesnt help being one of the latest there.

Girls being girls, we found ways to entertain ourselves.:P We camwhored:P

the girls

all of us

It was then the whole bunch of international students came over and combined tables with us. I thought it was nice of them to be friendly. And I thought some were cute too:P

And the cutest one according to meiwen whois ryan cabrera lookalike so happened sat next to me where i was ‘strategically’ placed-the edge of the table.

We chatted up a storm and ahyi decided to abandon the conversation halfway due to some reasons. blueks.

Everybody was chatting then including the other girls so it got a little noisy.Hence he had to move an inch closer otherwise i might as well be making sign languages to him:P Then i heard cameras clicking away. Semua orang jahattllaa:P

Im very shy wan marr:P And thanks meiwen for preserving my anonymity. It doesnt matter. my name is splashed all over karen’s blog so no mystery there. And its no big deal also. But if it gives my girlfrens the pleasure of fantasizing about him when they do the teasing thing i’ll just keep quiet lor. As long as theyre happy. See, that should increase my karma another notch:P

Anyhow,  we decided to adjourn to another club since the night got a lil boring. Felt kinda bad never say proper goodbye. Hope we didnt cemar nama baik Msia. We Malaysians do bid proper adieu under normal circumstances.hehe

Then i fell in love. With Bamboo:) Ive never really enjoyed clubbing in Malaysia with random cinapeks trying to grab ur ass and being engulfed in ciggies’ smoke. Ok the music might not be exactly up to date but the place reminded me alot of MOS in Spore where different part of the club plays diff genre of songs. We stuck to r&b and hiphop.

And eyecandies were aplenty too. Guy and girls alike. Had a good time drooling over some:P

Must go back next wednesday:) i miss Bamboo already. and i hope pub night will be somewhere more happening next week.

Next day, we were dead bored so watched Babylon AD with the guys. PLS it is so NOT recommended. The plot in the beginning was alright but towards the end it felt like the director ran out of money and had to cut the movie short. Might as well watch Dark Knight for the 3rd time.

kebab for supper in outside in the cold cold night

On Friday, we decided to pay Pollock House a visit since Ken had been raving on how beautiful it was. We needed to kill time and it has to be done on a budget. Its cheap to get there and could picnic (homecooked food-cheap). Sad case. Italy is gonna be so mempokaikan huhuhu.

But the place was far from sad. The Burrell gallery housed from beautiful stained glass, to armours to silks frm the middle east and breathtaking tapestries.

kissy kissy

interesting sculpture:P

massive stained glass collection

not vertically challenged.hehe

ignore the 2 hantus

the throne

pretty details

We also saw highland cattles along our way to the house. None gave us any damn though. Not even a flying stone by Ken that landed with a thud on their 5 inches thick fur got their attention. Sedihnya.haha

I think they were shaved not very long ago

Lunch time..wheee~~

Our food tasted like they came straight out from a fridge. It was THAT cold.

some chinese pancakes

steamed mantous..

lemongrass fried rice with bratwursts

ulou yang camera sensitif

After lunch-recharged-wackiness maximus

We also paid a visit to the beautifully sculptured gardens which won the Best European Garden award 2008. Not bad wei:) Naturally we spent hours camwhoring when we could easily cover the place in much less time. I could see regret in the guys’ eyes. LOL. Then Ken decided to be the ‘harsh’ guide and practically shooed us from one part of the garden to the next. blueks.

got proof ok

the girls

we were awed by the flora and beautifully sculptured garden all over. But i thought the gardens in Hampton  Court palace was much nicer

i swear this flower felt like plastic

this reminded me of some tribal skirt

i found something bigger than my face..oo la la

It then rained on us halfway through. Nothing could deter us from doing what we love most. CAMWHORE:P

I was the only one that erected my umbrella though. The only future healthcare professional that cares:P Others were too busy concocting their ANTM poses they didnt mind getting wet. Wet is sexy anyways.haha.

Since we were running out of time, we only entered the basement of pollock house. The £5 saved was spent on candies and postcards instead. bleah. mou tak kau:P

So that basically sums up how i spent my past few boring days.

Plus its so quiet at home cos our neighbours went to Manchester. Its so quiet its eerie.

Anyways i dyed my hair today. with Loreal Recital Preference Dark Red Ultra Violet. The colour is not that obvious but at least my haircolor is even now. And it was gel-like hence i sent a few splotches of red gel on my carpet and my chair. It now looks like a murder scene or sth close to that.

And went to the GYM. Ppl were shocked when they heard that. It about time to get my lazy ass to sweat. It felt good. Looking forward to aerobics next monday:)

AND sorry for the lack of updates.

Blame Moonlight Resonance lar. Im so addicted its unhealthy.haha. I cant wait for the next epi.

And Gossip S2 is out. Im totally in love with Chuck Bass. And what is wrong with Nate, screwing an older married rich lady. oops. spoilerr..haha

Anyways my neighbours came bac today with egg tarts and stories from Old Trafford. I cant wait to go huhuhu.

Peilian u better be ready for my arrival:P Cant wait to see you!!

food galore

29 Aug

It is indeed nice to have housemates, neighbours or frens who are not sitting for pp3 degree. They have so much free time we get the privilege to sample fattening goodies from them.

Our supper tonight.

by hui bee,  who had no idea how vanilla essence looked like, and what folding the flour into the mixture means.

yes, this is her first cake.

And it was a success:) and she was so comical throughout the whole process.

and she thinks baking is much harder than pp3. LOL

marble cake

marble cake

then came yieng’s peanut butter cookies. it was yummy. aren’t we lucky?:)

not to forget steph’s bakkua that flew all the way from msia….*HINT HINT* mummy

i decided to join in the fun.  armed with my pp3 book on my dining table, i went on a garlic chopping rampage. Made garlic bread. i prefer it slightly less salty but some liked it the way it is. and everybody gave me such a hard time on being ‘ham’..eessh

im sure steph will be glad to see the almost 3 weeks old half baked baguette gone from the dining table:P

renu made us chapati and chicken curry a day before yday too. to celebrate hers and ahyi’s exemption. im so proud of u guys:)

It was damn good. can fight those mamak places we used to frequent back at home:) im sure u will do ur mother-in-law proud, angel:P




when they were still in balls:P


indian chicken curry. made from scratch:P

we had our capati with bakkuteh.very muhibbah i know.hehe

no, call it fungkutteh. we only threw in tau foo pok and lotsa mushroom in the soup. they were expiring fast. hence the combination:P it was still good nevertheless:)



our neighbour decided to spice up their dinners by having competitions where the chosen ones will whip up some fancy dish and the so called judges will comment and rate the dishes. heard carolyn had the hardest time from the ‘nasty’ judges.:P too bad i wasnt there.

yesterday was a battle between sue and jamie.lucky us neighbours we got to sample the dishes as well:) and pretend to be some noisy audience. ok, the noisy part was not pretentious:P

theme= western.

a bit of everything

a bit of everything

clockwise from 12oclock, coleslaw, mixed vege salad, curry powder chicken

i dont remember is this was sue's or jamie's lamb

this should be jamie's lamb if im not mistaken:)


mushroom fav dish. jamie's first time and was made frm scratch ok. damn yummy:)

cheese baked rice by sue

cheese baked rice by sue


hungry girls are scary:P

the winner?

sue beat jamie by 3.5 marks. they were almost equally as good. cheers!!!

since im talking about food here, might as well blog about what i had for dinner today.

twas squid + prawns fried in spicy beans or sth like that. mind u think this is one of the most spicy dish i had since i came here. ahh, i love seafood.:) been so deprived.hehe

seaphood galore

seaphood galore

brocolli. nth beats home cooked brocolli

brocolli. nth beats home cooked brocolli

and we had omelette as well. nothing much to shout about. rule of thumb? just throw whatever u can find in the fridge into the egg mixture:P

u tell me, HOW NOT TO BE FATter LIKE THAT???

sad also eat, happy also eat. nothing can stop food from going into our GI tract. We always have reason to celebrate, even though we’re not the celebrated ones.LOL. jialat

Gala=my new home:P

12 Jul

So well, we finally met Cik Nazlinda from Jpa london and she treated us to a hearty meal in Cafe India glasgow. It was 20pounds for each of us and there were 28 of us. So well, u do the math urself. I can already foresee Gobi posting another hatepost regarding the jpas again. anyways, we hope she will be back to pay us another visit..keke

papadoms and dips

our starter. a mixture of everything

yieng, luiyan and i

our table:)

flo checking out some waiter

still cant get enough of him:P

then yieng wanted some artistic shots. sorry la tak jadi:P

missed naan

some mutton curry. pls dont ask me the exact name. makan saje.

the meat was superbly tender.YUMS.damn good

This was our FAV. Some creamy green curry with chicken chunks and capsicums and mildly spiced. flo and i downed like duno how many bowls of these. Its buffet style so u can order as many helpings as u want.:P

our dessert. tad too sweet for my liking though

flo’s dessert. didnt really like it also:P

i think adding coconut shreds to the cheesecake base was a bad idea

irn bru + lemonade in wine glass.


Some of us casino addicts then adjourned to Gala. lost some money then won back.:) its a good night in short. despite screwing my first mock dispensing test today:P
