Making the right decision.

So I've ceremoniously completed my Foundation in Science in UTAR. Yes, I said ceremoniously. I didn't do nearly as good as I should, relatively bad maybe. My perspective of course. I feel as though I am on the edge of failure, failing at every opportunity I get to actually enter a good university. 

It all started a year ago, I decided to study UTAR's FIS program and then later on continue with a degree in Mechatronic Engineering there too. Which was a ultimate stupidity. I mean, I don't even have the interest in doing stuffs like that. But more about that later. 

And so after an entire year of being strained and stressed out, I've finished it. During that whole three semesters I already know deep down that I am not cut out of engineering. My physics is not bad, but neither is it good. It is just average. Mediocre. And you know what? I really do not think doing and being mediocre is good enough to get me that degree. And judging by the percentage of UTAR Engineering dropouts and failures, I really could not imagine what would happen to me. Am I just scaring myself? What do you think? 

Nonetheless, after striking out engineering from my list, I looked towards BSc degrees. I thought to myself, I'd pick Biology over Physics hands down. But what was my barrier this time? I am not allowed many options as I did not take Biolody in my SPM. So I picked just pure chemistry for my degree. All I have to do now is just to get the transfer form and wait for approval. And hell I was darn sure that the approval will be a success. Why you may ask? That is because a friend of mine is also in the same stream as me and doing this as her degree already. So three semesters passed. And my decision was made.


So a day after I got my results, I went back to UTAR to get the transfer done with. I went to the admission department and talked to the guy about my transfer. He took my results and information in and processed for about 50 seconds. He came back to me and said 'Sorry. You are not allowed to transfer.' I stoned there. I was speechless. I did not know what to do. I questioned him and informed him about my friend's stream and course. He gave me one last sentence to shut me up, he said to me 'You have no biology in your SPM certificate.'.

At that point in time, I knew that there was nothing else I could do. 

I felt lost and indecisive  I didn't know what else I could do. All I know is that I had to have my mind made up before classes commences. And that is in a week time. Which made things even more tense. After sobbing in the car for god knows how long. I decided to let go of UTAR and shop for some other university. 

You know what? I completed my foundation with a cgpa of only 3.18. Most universities that offer the course that I want has a requirement of a minimum cgpa of 3.2 or even 3.5. Despite the fact that counselors, friends and even lecturers from all over tell me how hard is it to score well in UTAR, I believe otherwise. I have friends that score well in UTAR, so why can't I? I blame myself for not working hard enough and only aiming for an average grade in everything.

Later that day, my boyfriend brought me to MAHSA U. Had a talked with the counselors there, had them process my results and info, had a tour of the facilities there. And I got their acceptance letter to do a UK degree in Physiotherapy. This is absurd! I can get in to MAHSA's physiotherapy but not UTAR's!

My parents seem to be exceptionally affirmative of me doing this. They really are. I do not think it would be bold choice to go against their decision. But then again, I'm the one studying.

I do not know what else to say about it but you get the idea. Goodbye.

眼睛受感染.

I'm sorry LOL! Lack of pictures.

我的眼睛已经痛了几天. 整个眼睛红红肿肿. 痒到死!
再加上当我眨眼睛时会很痛!! Haihh.
我的朋友一直告诉我去看医生, 但我拒绝.
因为我真的很怕医生会说 'I think you should go to the hospital.'
这种感觉我已经体验过了. 的确很恐怖.

昨晚在补习时 眼睛真得太痛太痒了.
真的BEH TAHAN! 一边补习一边流眼泪.
SeeTeng & Melissa 一直叫我去看医生.
我说OKOK. 但在我心中真的没有这个计划.

补完Physics过后就补Chemistry.
我的眼睛还在受苦. 我实在受不了了!
我觉得在我眼里好像有一粒沙.

补习过后我感到很高兴! :D
一上到车, 我就很自然的说,
'Mii, can bring me to the clinic or not?' LOL!
OMG! 我真的没想到我会说这句话.

在clinic时 我感到很紧张. GRR.
突然听到那个lady叫我的名.Ahh. 我的心跳越来越快.
我走进去, 就看到那个医生对我yam xiu. 哈哈.
Relieved :D Then i felt so stupid for being so nervous.

Doctor said it can either be caused by bacteria or might be a friend that passed it to me.
Now i have two packets of tablets to take, a bottle of 眼药水 and an eye cream.
So i'm glad i went to see the doctor :P

突然想到Ahmong昨天跟我讲一句超笨的话. 想到她我都会笑! 哈哈哈! Ahmong你太可爱了.   昨天我带我的Pendrive去学校借他.

Frizz-free hair with Moist Diane!

Hello beauties!
I said I'll be back in May, didn't I? But I also said I'd be back after my finals, which turned out to be a lie because as I am writing this, I still have to sit for the last paper of my semester in the coming days.

A trip to Taman Pertanian!

Finally, i got the pictures! Muahahah! So I'll start from Friday.
FRIDAY . 18 MAC  Same old routine. Went to tuition at 6.30pm. But with a different bag. Two very important things happened that night. Both embarrassing and scary. Okay! Let's continue. I brought a big bag, all filled with my clothes. Cause i was gonna sleepover @ Teng's place. I thought bringing my pencil box to tuition will only make my bag heavier. So  I just put a pen into the pocket of my bag.
Here comes the embarrassing part!
I wanted to take my pen out. So i slipped my hand into my bag pocket without looking. I just kept digging and digging. Then  felt something long and hard. I thought it was my pen cause it sure felt like one. Once i took it out. IT WAS MY TOOTHBRUSH!! zomg wtf! Luckily no one saw what happened. So embarrassing wooi!
Went to Teng's place after tuition. We walked out in the middle of the night to buy some bread, tuna, junk food etc. for our trip the next day. We had and encounter…

All you need to know about 8excite!

Hola to all ma money-saving homies out there! It's been a while since I last talked about my crazy aunty ways of living life. If you guys are here long enough, you'd know that all my stuffs are either given to me by relatives, friends or bought from fleas or are preloved. I do splurge once in a while, but only if I find that item very worth its value or that its a super cheap deal (meaning the original price is waaaaaaay higher, my forte is about at least 40-50% hahaha). You know why? Cos I am cultured to be an aunty since a very young age. I'm sure there are many of you out there as well. Let's call us, young aunties.
It's 8excite! 
Before I go on any further, you should totes download the app on your phone. The app is basically a platform that offers crazy deals on things such as food, beauty and wellness, leisure and travelling, shopping and more. So, this post goes out to all my young aunties out there! The app and website are also all categorized neatly for ea…

Going to Church for the first time

Hello there, beautiful creatures of the earth!For most of you who did not know, I am not religious. To add on to that, I am also very shallow in knowledge when it comes to religions. I consider myself an atheist not because I do not want to believe in any gods, but because I can't seem to do so. That being said, if one day I do feel the presence of a higher being, I wouldn't deny it or reject the fact that there is an existence of it. But as of now, this is all I have. The title may seen a little misleading as this wasn't my actual FIRST time at church. But anyway, the last time I step foot into a church was 6 years ago. So, I guess we'll just leave it at that.
In my entire life, I have been to 3 churches. And through every visit, all I felt was skeptical, a little uncomfortable and very curious. Mostly due to the fact that I only went because that Christian friend of mine asked me to. I have to admit, I wasn't very fond of the idea back then. The first church I wen…

4 things we did at Port Dickson!

Hello 2016 and hello earthlings!  Valentine's day just blew past and soon Chinese New Year will be coming to an end. Before you know it, the first 2 months of the year have disappeared! NOO! Time, can you please take a chill pill? I have so much to talk and rant about, I can't contain myself like wtf. 
In the beginning of the year, I went to Port Dickson with #themonsters9x. Every time we go out for trips, we would take heap loads of photos. But these days, nobody dedicates a whole album on Facebook to your trip lo. So, all you are left with are photos and memories in your hard disk waiting for you to look back at it one day and go 'AWWWW'. So ah, where else am I allowed to spam photos without being judged other than my blog, right? 

On A Daily Basis.

Hello! It's been a while! I am a very busy girl, involuntarily of course. Apparently my schedule is always flushed with books, reports and tests. I have tests almost every weekend, consecutively until the end of my trimester. And then comes the next semester and guess what? It starts all over again! How wonderful, no? *hehe 
But honestly, you really can't blame me. UTAR have this strict policy of getting a 100% success rate on making their students suffer and they also restrict their students from having a social life. Or maybe even to be a lil more precise, a LIFE. I'm lucky to even be here right now! *blessed :P
Here's my face so you won't get bored! Or forget how I look like!  Which ever comes first. Haha
Speaking of which, I have these two guy friends that calls me 'Daily Basis'. Just because I upload pictures of myself on a daily basis. Priceless. Haha. *You know who you are. But all jokes aside, I do think that I do that too frequently. I shall do my…

UTAR Study Tour Soka University, Tokyo

Hey! So, here's a post that's long overdue... After long contemplation, I have finally decided how I should blog about my half-month trip to Tokyo, Japan. But before I go on any further, I'd like you guys to make yourself comfortable and maybe go brew yourself a nice hot cup of Joe before starting on this. I'd like to point out that I am indeed very proud of myself for still insisting on writing this out even though I'm pretty sure I've forgotten most of the details. But, I'll do my best!
Well guys, hold on to your hats. This is gonna be a lengthy post! We spent over RM700 per person just on transport alone!
Anyway, so here's my proposition on blogging about my trip to Japan. In this post, I will be writing mainly about my experience during the study tour programme in Soka University. Because in anyway, this is the main reason why I get to see and experience Japan in a completely different perspective and also get to go to so many different places while…
