Happy 4th Year Anniversary Darling

Lol!! I was suppose to post this exactly a month ago, but I am only posting it now. Well, at least it is at the right time because today is our 4 years and 1 month anniversary! I'm gonna leave the title as 4th year anniversary though cause I did write half of it a month ago. The pictures took almost a month to post up okay!


Although we did not get to celebrate this fateful day together, we had the most amazing summer, didn't we? We took so many pictures together showing what we've done together hor?

#1. The first day I was in Malaysia, we hung out in my house while waiting for my sister together..

#2. Went out for a midnight snack together..

#3. Studied together.. =P (Why are you holding my bad btw?)

#4. Purposely met up even when we were yamcha-ing with different groups to take a picture together..

#5. Went to birthday parties together..

#6. Ate at Tenji together..

#6. Went clubbing together..

#7. Waited for my photoshoot patiently together..

#7. Entertained me with your funny quirks while waiting together..

#8. Went to Australia together..

#9. Spent wonderful times at Australia together..

#10. Had an interesting biting negotiation during Sooi Jin's party at Jun's place together..

#11. Went to Jun's club together..

#12. Became my model while we were eating at Secret Recipe together..

#13. Took another 'kissing' picture at Chili's even when there were people laughing at us together..

#14. Went to Bubba Gum for dinner a day before I left together..

#15. ..and stayed with me till the day I had to leave for Florida.

Xin Min and Jess was saying how it was weird that I told them, "For some unknown reason, I really miss Danny." But I guess I actually do know the reason. We were together for almost every day this summer, that suddenly not having you by my side seems weird. Like something is missing.

I am glad that this day did and had came because I love you more and more every day. I hope there are more anniversaries to come. Okay. I am going to end here because if I say anymore fluff stuff, I will melt. I am already feeling the goosebumps rising. *Shivers*

p/s: I love you Danny!

Changes made during summer

I just realized that time had just whiz by this summer. Not only am I back to classes for Fall 09.

There were even new buildings that I thought were still under construction before I left for Malaysia. But they are all finished by now.

#1. They finished building the new South Village dorm rooms. And the place looks amazing. If I don't already love my room, I would have wanted to apply a room there.

#2. The new parking lot is also done. It used to be a normal parking lot but they've built one with a few stories in it. I guess we have too many commute students and they really need it.

So many things are happening now that I don't even know how I am going to talk about what I did this summer. I probably will do what Jess did, and instead of naming it as Holiday Series, I would call it Summer Holiday Series. Hmm, yea. That sounds so much better and more original, don't you think.

Anyway, I want to take this opportunity to wish Jiun Shyong and Xin Min a very happy 21st birthday.

#3. Jiun Shyong, get yourself a gf. I think you can have girls lining up for you in a blink of an eye. You just have to go ask them to be yours. And of course, good luck with whateva you are doing! Don't forget you owe me a meal!

#4. Xin Min, I hope you are happy right know, if you know what I mean. Don't put too much pressure on yourself with your social life and/or with your uni assignments and stuff. Your present this year is probably going to be put on hold for awhile cause didn't have the time to get you something yet. Hehe! But fear not, it will come.. one day.

Thats about all the wishes I have. Now to go back to planning when to write all my Summer Holiday Series post while studying and working at the same time. Hmm, any ideas?

It is bad karma I tell you!

How can a flight home turn out to be one of the worst experiences in my life.

First, my flight from Malaysia landed in Newark half an hour late, 10:30a.m.

Then, it took me an hour to get my bags from the carousel, 11:30a.m.

Then, I had to call a cab but it turns out it takes the cab 20 min to get to my place and another hour to drive me to the JFK airport to get on my 1:20p.m. flight. 11:40a.m.

Then, I didn't have the time to wait 1 hour 20 min for the cab, so I took the one that was already at the Newark airport.

Then, I misunderstood the lady when she said, "$87 plus toll," which of course was suppose to mean that the toll money is included in the $87 right? But noooooo. I was mistaken apparently. I didn't know this till the cab driver had put all my bags into the car, closed the door, turned to me and said "Did the lady tell you how much it was?" I nodded, "$87 plus toll." He gives me the look and said, "$20 for the toll." I tried to argue but I lost. Even the lady said she meant it didn't includes the toll money. I was pressed for time so I just said okay and was off to the JFK airport, 11:50a.m.

Then, the cab driver had the cheek to say that I only gave him a 4 dollar tip (I gave him $111, $87 = cab fare + $20 = toll money (bullshit!) + $4 = tip). Hello!! The toll money was probably only 8 bucks. You already earned enough! 12:50p.m.

Then, when I got into the airport, I realized the cab driver dropped me at Terminal 4: the wrong terminal!! 12:53p.m

Then, I had to pay another 5 bucks to get a trolley to put all my 3 bags. 12:57p.m.

Then, I had to sit the air train to the next terminal and walk a looooooooong ass way with a ass of a trolley to Terminal 5. 1:00

Then, I went up to the counter to ask the to check me in. But!! The counter said it was already closed and couldn't check me in. They could have checked me in if they wanted!! They probably just gave my seat to some standby passenger seat already!!! 1:03p.m.

Then, I had to line up this long ass que to ask the to put me on the next flight to Fort Myers. Not only that, I was embarrassing myself when I started crying in the line. The girl in front of me kept sneaking glances when she thought I wasn't looking. She must have thought I was crazy or something. 1:35p.m.

Then, just my luck, the next flight which is at 3:30p.m. was cancelled due to the weather and I had to wait till the 7:20p.m. flight. And I don't even have a confirm seat! I am on bloody standby!! 1:40p.m.

Then, I couldn't check in first because I can only check in 4 hours before the flight. So I wandered around for something to do. 2:00p.m.

Then, I realized I was hungry but all they had was Dunkin' Donuts with no decent beverages besides coffee and water. 2:15p.m.

Then, I cried again. I think the two person sitting next to me would have switched to another seat if there was one available (the place was packed). 2:20p.m.

Then, I had to sit in the waiting area for hours while my dad keeps bugging me every half an hour, trying to tell me, "If you did this, then you wouldn't missed your flight," and yada yada. 4:30p.m.

Then, I wasn't able to get on the 7:20p.m. flight because there was no extra seats. 8:00p.m.

Then, I tried getting one for the next flight but the lady at the customer service counter told me, "Sorry. You will have to wait for the next flight which is tomorrow. But there aren't guarantee seats cause the 6a.m., 1p.m. and 3p.m. flight is full. There is a place in the 7p.m. one though." Which means, I have to wait 12 hours in the airport because I most probably won't be able to get on any of the earlier flights. 8:30p.m.

Then, I decided to change my destination. Instead of landing in Fort Myers, I would land in Tampa (which is also in Florida but is 2 - 3 hours drive from my uni). 8:45p.m.

Then, I had to pay the change-destination-fee, $100 and the difference-in-price-fee, $231. Altogether, I had to pay $231 to get home that night. 8:55p.m.

Then, I had another long lecture from my dad again. He almost didn't want to come get me from Tampa and wanted me to stay there and wait. But he did in the end. I think he just like lecturing me. 9:10p.m.

Then, my flight got delayed due to the weather, and reached Tampa only at 1:40a.m.

Then, my dad drove us back to the Fort Myers airport to collect my bags because my bags got into the 7:20p.m. flight to Fort Myers but not me. 2:13a.m.

Then, we had to wait for the people who work at the office to come and open the door so that I could get my bags. 4:50a.m.

Then, I had to endure another of my dad's complaints and plans on complaining to the airport customer service. (He even wants to go on this radio show to complaint about it. Worst thing is, he wants ME to do it. Sigh~)

Then, I had to wake my roommate, Alyssa to open the door for me at 6 in the morning. Thanks gurl!

Then, I had to sleep on the couch cause I don't have the keys to my room yet. I had to wake up early today to go get them.

Then, it was about this time I realized that I haven't take a shower in about 44 hours and I really stink!!!!

Then, while I was unpacking, I couldn't find my ethernet cord to go online and all the shops are sold out cause other students have already bought them.

So, here I am, sitting in my room with Alyssa's ethernet cord, typing this ridiculous entry when I really really want to talk about the day I went out with Kok Hong and Danny they all. But I am not in the mood. Give me a day or two.

Seriously, I think this is all bad karma. I have the strongest gut feeling that all this happened to me because I refused to exchange my seat when an almost-old-lady asked me during my flight from Stockholm to Newark. I am never refusing an almost-old-lady ever again!

A random post I want to write before writing Australia Trip Week 2 Part 2

Okay! Soooo, remember Wai Leng and Tuck Lian's kid. The one I meet when I was in Australia.

#1. This one. Wayne. I met him again today! ^^ Wai Leng and Tuck Lian dropped by my house to get some stuff, thus me having the opportunity to see Wayne again. Haha!! I just realized that I have only met him twice.

#2. He is so adorable!! How can a almost-one-year-old kid smirk!! Too adorable.

#2. Such a hyper kid. I don't think he likes me very much. Must have inherited that from stupid Tuck Lian. =P Hmm, or maybe I just suck at holding him.

#3. Damn yeng rite? I mean Wayne, not Tuck Lian obviously. =P


#5. Later, Danny and I went out for lunch. It was suppose to be lunch with only the 2 of us, but I called Xin Min and Danny called Jiun Shyong. It turns out that Jiun Shyong is with Fook Siang at the gym(shock!). Coincidentally Aaron is also at the gym (miracles do happen!). I have no idea where Marcus comes from. Then Fook Siang called Ivie. Thus, having a big group lunch session.

It has been too long since we've come together. I mean, Xin Min is in uni all the time, Aaron is too lazy to get his ass out (that is why it is a miracle that he is even in gym), Marcus is too busy accompanying his pubic hair girlfriend, and Ivie is sometime-almost-always traveling. Danny, Jiun Shyong, Fook Siang and I are the only loyal yamcha-ers. It was great to get together again. More than I can ask for, especially with me leaving for Florida this Friday.

Not to mention, I will finally be meeting Kok Hong, my primary ex-classmate, tomorrow after 10 years. Feeling a bit nervous. Damn long never see him already. I still remember I used to annoy the hell outta him when we sat next to each other in class. I have a very strong gut feeling that he used to hate me. Hahah!!! Let see how it goes tomorrow.

p/s: Wai Leng, as promised, I replaced took off the Melbourne Central picture already. You can check it now if you want. Hehe!! ^^
