I'm currently doing my research on the places that I want to visit when I go to Rome tomorow. I've been using Angels and Demons and The Lizzie McGuire Movie as my references so I have managed to come up with a list so now I am trying to figure out the directions and stuff.
Honestly, I have never thought that I would be able to visit Rome anytime soon ( I was supposed to go there during my birthday but it didn't exactly worked out). I've always wanted to go there eversince I watched this TVB drama when I was thirteen.
Apart from that, I have been spending my birthdays watching the Lizzie McGuire Movie (eversince last year) so hopefully, I'll be able to visit all the places that are featured :)
This post is dedicated to my housemates whom I have been living together for the past 8 months :)
I just received my summer accomodation letters today and I found out that I won't be staying together with my current housemates. I was rather bummed out at first but they will only be here for two more weeks before they shift, so it wouldn't make any difference. Besides, they're only staying at the next block so I can still run over and disturb them if I want to.
To think that I was so silly for wanting to shift out initially because I wanted to be with my other college friends. I am really, really thankful that that didn't happen because if it did, I would never be able to meet such awesome people. With that, this post is specially for you Shanny, Vivien and Aaron :)
Words can never describe how thankful I am that you knocked on my door when I first arrived. It was very nice and kind of you to invite me for dinner, eventhough I was an absolute stranger then. I never thought that we would become close because honestly, I was rather intimidated by you in the beginning :P I soon realised that it was silly for me to feel like that because you're nothing but a nice and caring person. I am truly grateful for having the opportunity to be friends with you. You are definitely like an elder sister I've always wanted but never had. Thank you for all the things that you have taught and done for me and for being who you are. Thank you for cooking all those wonderful meals for me :) That is actually one of the reasons why I don't miss home that much. I will never forget all the fun times we had (when we saw snow for the first time and you thought it was raining :P) and I will definitely miss the fact that I am able to just barge into your room whenever I need someone to talk to, or just because I feel like doing so. Love you loads <3
I know we were never really close but I have always treated you as one of my elder sister :) You are very nice and kind, just like your elder sister. I will never be able to express how grateful I am for meeting you and having the opportunity to stay together with you. It has definitely been a great experience that I will never forget. Thank you for all the things that you have done for me and thank you for all the things that you have taught me (like cooking rice for example :P) I will definitely miss those times when all of us would go on a trip together and all the things we've talked about. Thank you for being the other elder sister I've always wanted but I never had. I will definitely meet up with you and Shanny when I come back in November. Love love love you! <3
To be honest, I think you're definitely one of the nicest guy I've ever met. I know you're definitely going to laugh like a mad boy when you read this but I'm serious. If you didn't have a girlfriend, I would have fallen for you already *kidding kidding* :P Anyhow, thank you for everything that you have done for me. Thank you for listening to my crazy rants and accompanying me to watch all the horror movies I wanted to watch (althought I will never listen to your advice on Hong Kong horror movies anymore). Thank you for coming up with all those crazy ass-kicking meals and thank you for accompanying me to wherever I wanted to go. Words can never describe how lucky I am for being able to meet you and the girls. Also, I won't be able to find such a nice supper buddy anytime soon, therefore I'll really miss that. Thank you for being the elder brother I've never had :)
To sum it all up, my experience here will never be as awesome as this if it weren't for you guys. I have loved and know London my whole life but it is safe to say that you three definitely made this place even better to live in.
On another note, I will definitely miss my dorm room.
This post is dedicated to a very special friend of mine :)
Alvina, I hope you'll like this.
This whole year has definitely been one big adventure. We were never really close back in college but who would have known that two years later, you became one of my closest friends. I know there are tons of ups and downs while we are here but I can honestly say that I have thoroughly enjoyed the experiences we faced because you were here with me.
I just want to say thank you for everything for the past year because if you weren't there for me, I think I would have gone crazy already.
Thank you for listening to my loony rants and for calling me whenever I messaged you.
Thank you for introducing me some awesome make-up and being my consultant :P
Thank you for accompanying me whenever I am too scared to talk to a lecturer or ask someone for something.
Thank you for accompanying me to Hogwarts during my birthday and thank you for the cake!
Thank you for putting up with me because I know that sometimes I can get quite crazy :)
I will never forget the times where we would go shopping together, our stressful assignment times and how we would always have Subway whenever we go to Cambridge's town centre
All in all, I would never have enjoyed whatever we went through without you.
I'm quite sad that you're going back home so soon :(
I know this is very random but I get really pissed off when people look down on Arts and Humanities courses.
Seriously, what's your problem? So what if we don't study medicine or law? Does that mean we're not as clever as those who do? Does that mean that you can look down on us and belittle us because we don't conform to social norms?
I can literally feel my blood boil whenever I hear comments about mass communications being an easy course.
'You don't need to study or have much skills.' - someone once told me.
Easy your head. Why don't YOU try it out then?
Have you tried writing 1237681734 different articles? Have you tried designing a magazine cover or a website? Have you tried shooting and editing a video? Have you tried analyzing movies and advertisements?
If you haven't, please do me a HUGE favour and shut your piehole.
I'm so sick of people looking down on us because we're not doctors or nurses, or someone that design houses and buildings. If you think so little of our industry, then don't read the paper. Don't watch TV.
No wait, actually you should!
Because apart from doing things that do not need much skills or studying we can also convince you to believe what we want you to believe or get whatever we want you to buy so that you'll be freaking broke.
I know I was supposed to update last Saturday but I didn't have the mood to do so :(
So, here I am 4 days later - still with no birthday post in hand. However, I've drafted it already so it won't be long before I post it up.
In the meantime, my one and only exam is approaching soon and I have not managed to read everything yet. I have been forcing myself to read at least 2 chapters a day. It has been working well so far, so let's just hope it stays that way :)
If you have been talking to me recently, you would have known that I am currently hooked onto Singaporean dramas. With the rate I am watching, I think my Mandarin will improve tremendously by the time I go back to Malaysia. It all started from The Little Nyonya :/ I'm so hooked :(
Aside from that, if you have been talking to me recently, you would also know that I am currently having a girly crush on Pierre Png. I have been watching some of his dramas - mainly The Little Nyonya, Phua Chu Kang and currently Dear, Dear Son In-Law.
I'm currently in the library. I studied a chapter earlier on and I think I have memorized it quite well. Aaron thought that I wouldn't be able to answer the question regarding the year when Ferdinand De Saussure was born (which wasn't even exactly relevant to my exam questions) but I managed to answer it :}
I'm off to the gym now. Will definitely update about my birthday soon!
I have so many things to do but yet I am bored out of my wits.
Anyway, regarding my last post, I didn't actually meet the real Daniel Radcliffe. I only saw his wax self instead.
Yes, my dears. I visited Madame Tussauds two weeks ago :) I was supposed to keep that for my birthday but my friends and I are planning for something bigger instead *coughromecough* :}
Woke up late that day. Was supposed to reach the station at 10am but we ended up only leaving our place at 10am. Rachelle came over to join Aaron and I before we met up with Alvina at the station. We bought our tickets and off we went to London.
Alvina, Rachelle and I
In the tube
We reached Madame Tussauds at about 12pm and we thought that there might not be a lot of people at the line, seeing that you can actually book the tickets online at a cheaper price. Boy, we were wrong because the line looked like this when we arrived.
We were practically reaching the end of the block.
Our photographer for the day :P
Us with LomoLomo
While we were lining up, there was this Chinese lady who was trying to cut our queue! She thought she could walk subtly in front of us but it was so obvious okay! The girls and I were quite pissed because we were all waiting outside in the cold for quite sometime. Ughh some people just don't have manners.
Anyway, we finally managed to get in after a while. I'll let the pictures do the talking from now on :)
At the Hollywood area - Zac Efron
Daniel Radcliffe :}
We are Brangelina's newly adopted kids
I got a little too excited. Sorry :P
Keira Knightly and Orlando Bloom
I like the height difference.
Hope that my future boyfriend will be as tall as that
Smallest wax figure in the museum
Fighting for the Olympic torch
Sir Issac Newton
Hmmm to be or not to be?
All the single ladies!
Sharing her award.
Speaking of which, her new album is really good.
We skipped the Scream chamber because the thought of having live actors portraying serial killers coming up close to you was too creepy for our liking. We went straight to the taxi ride, and the 4D superhero experience before we left.
Walked around for a bit before heading off to a wonderful Malaysian restaurant, where we ate like we haven't done so for 23423523 years. Went back to Hobbitland after that
It was pretty tiring but the trip was very enjoyable nonetheless. Hopefully my next trip blog post will be about Rome!
