Pi Pi Pi Pi

Hello all! Sorry for the lack of updates. Keeping two blogs made me realize how boring my life is. Haha but it's alright. I am contented with what I have right now. Anyway, I'm having a migraine right now so I'll make this a quick one.

This afternoon, the Pos Laju guy came ringing on my door bell with a parcel for me. Hmm.. I don't recall ordering anything online. So the first two thing that came to my mind was "Did my sister order something using my name?" and "Did I win something?"

Tokyo omiyage from Kristy haha

I was really excited as I unwrap it because I totally did not expect this! She just came back from Tokyo like 2 days ago? Haha anyway this is what she gave me

A box full of goodies and lots of Kit Kat

It's mine! haha

Inside the box:

Tokyo Banana, Kit Kat, Shiroi Koibito etc

JUMP note book I'm born in Heisei Gonna use this book to plan my Japan trip

And the loveliest souvenir of all, KinKi Kids postcard and Ohkura fan license(not in picture cause I've kept it inside my wallet)

And a huge variety of Kit Kat ranging from Soy Sauce, Uji Matcha, Sakura Matcha, Roasted Soy Beans, Roasted Almond and Strawberry Cheese flavor

So for now lets hope that I manage to find a 'plumber' to fix my leaking and clogged nose so that I can taste the snacks and write a review soon.

PS: Pi Pi Pi Pi is the sound of the post man honking

Shock is real Shock

Break is out and school's in! I'm back to the 'burying heads in scholar's journal's' lifestyle.

My first lecture of the semester is FTV1010, Contemporary Television Studies.About 7 minutes to nine, I entered the auditorium and sat at the fourth seat of the last row, my usual spot. The freshies were making lots of noise, probably excited about their very first lecture while the seniors would just chillax at their own seat.

9:15Am...Mr. Benjamin's usually very punctual. Maybe he's caught in a bad traffic? I thought to myself

9:30AM.. Still no sign of Mr. Benjamin. This is when impatient people starts to complain and grumble. I was one of them.

9:45AM.. another lecturer came in and delivered a lecture on Godzilla and Alien vs Predator. "Trust me,I'm not trying to kill time. It's related to your studies," The lecturer said. But I wasn't really paying attention because I don't remember what Godzilla was about (watched it 12 years ago) and I've never watch the latter.

After undergoing another 2 more lectures, I've totally forgotten about Mr. Ben's absence until 8+pm

Mr. Benjamin,
You're one of the best lecturer Monash ever had.
Thanks for making your lectures and tutorials so fun and interesting.
Thanks for introducing some really awesome movies that I've never heard of
I wished that I was enrolled in your class during my first year and not in my second.
May you rest in peace.

I've been receiving several complains about the amount of dust and spider webs in my blog these days. Haha..nope I'm not abandoning this blog, I'm just busy completing whatever task that I've planned to do this semester break.

Next Monday marks the commencement of my fourth semester. It felt like yesterday I was still worrying about whether Monash would accept my application or not. And next week onwards, I'm already half way through my degree.

Results were released a couple of days ago and thanks to everyone's wishes, I manage to maintain my distinction streak for my journalism subject. However, I didn't do too well for my elective subjects. I didn't do too badly but I was so close to a distinction. Damn!! Ah.. I guess I have to work harder next time to increase my GPA. Talking about results.. my JLPT mock test result will be released tomorrow! Not much hope in that cause I didn't really study and it is a level higher than the level I'm suppose to take. I would buy the lotto if I passed it hahah.

Anyway, I've been fooling around in the kitchen a lot lately. So much that I've earned the title of 'Insane Chef Lee Seung Gi's brother'. (Lee Seung Gi is known for his seemingly abysmal cooking, which often results in food which all the other team members usually end up regretting to have eaten.) My sister's the one who gave me the title.. no idea why brother though haha. Very saddening but its alright..I'll make something better next time hopefully

The four dishes that I've made:
1. Harusame salad

2. Rare cheescake

3. Handmade Udon
Epic fail at the noodle part. But the Udon broth was really good. On par with restaurants one The reason for my failure is because I added too much water. Ahh.. Must be more careful next time.

4. Oyako don
I was watching this Chinese cooking program called "Nothing is Bigger than Eat". Funny name I know. One guy did the Oyako Don and it turned out really good. I was inspired and decided to try it and it turned out REALLY GOOD! I'm not trying to boast but my sister actually recognize this. So, I'm quite confident with this dish. hehehe

June Highlights

I'm a lazy bum bum...haven't been updating my blog properly since 2 weeks ago? haha I'm on a semester break but I'm even buzier compared to the days when I have to attend lectures and tutorials. Despite the 'jam pack schedule' allocated for books and dramas, I was able to do some activities that I wouldn't usually do like:

1. Caligraphy

This was taken during the Study in Japan education Fair. The main reason I attended the fair is to "be detective Conan's voice" as advertised on the poster. Instead of Conan, I was able to 'be Ayumi's voice'. Anyway, back to calligraphy. The last time I did calligraphy was 5 years ago! That explains the ugly writings haha.

2. Japanese Film Festival

Every year, the movie that I want to watch will fall on the day that I have a paper to write. I was really lucky this year cause "Dear Doctor" was screen a day after my final paper. Whee! The film was really good! I would have written about it for my major assignment if I've seen this film earlier on. Will blog about the movie some other time.

3.Completing a 5km run with the other 2 amigos

A blister on my toe due to the run haha. But it's ok, cause I have one extra certificate to be added into my archives haha. Someone even wanted to swap their medal for our certificates.

4.Drove to One Utama by myself

My mum is extremely protective when it comes to driving. I've been driving for 2 years and she still feel that I'm a freshie driver. The traffic was so awesome. Green lights all the way from home to One Utama. All hail green ranger! Anyway, I clip a ribbon on my hair and realize that it's time for a dye.


Reading is not my hobby but I've been doing some reading these days. I've read 5 novels in less than 2 weeks time. And they are all mystery fiction by Higashino Keigo. Among the Galileo series(there are 5 books in this series), I like "The Devotion of Suspect X" best.The moment I start reading, I can't stop. Gonna catch up on the Galileo drama next week.

hmm..thats all I guess?
