I Believe

I Believe...
That just because two people argue,
It doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
It doesn't mean they do love each other.

I Believe....
That no matter how good a friend is,
they're going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.

I Believe...
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I Believe...
That you can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.

I Believe....
That it's taking me a long time
To become the person I want to be.

I Believe...
That you should always leave loved ones with loving words
It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe....
That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I Believe....
That we are responsible for what
We do, no matter how we feel.

I Believe...
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I Believe...
That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs
to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I Believe.....

That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.

I Believe....
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down
will be the ones to help you get back up.

I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry
I have the right to be angry,
But that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe....
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had
And what you've learned from them and less to do with how many
birthdays you've celebrated.

I Believe....
That it isn't always enough,
to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I Believe...
That no matter how bad your heart is broken
the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I Believe....
That our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are,
But, we are responsible for who we become.

I Believe...
That you shouldn't be so eager to find
Out a secret. It could change your life Forever.

I Believe....
Two people can look at the exact same
Thing and see something totally different.

I Believe...
That your life can be changed in a matter of hours
By people who don't even know you.

I Believe.....
That even when you think you have no more to give,
When a friend cries out to you -
you will find the strength to help.

The happiest of people don't necessarily
have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.

Chap Goh Mei

Today is the last day of Chinese New Year of year 2010 which is also the last day of the month of February. FYI, Chap Goh Mei is the Valentine's Day for the chinese people. Single youngsters throw oranges to the sea on this day in hope to get their partner soon. I believe this tradition is still practiced up to this very day. Have you done it before? :)

Four years ago during my days in Labuan Matriculation College, me and my friends purposely when to a supermarket to get some oranges to throw to the sea. Unfortunately, those good oranges were all sold out leaving all the ALMOST ROTTEN and ROTTEN oranges for sale. We had to handpick the best one among those stinky oranges for the fun of throwing the oranges. Though we were not eating those oranges, it was still pretty disgusting pretty disgusting to hold those oranges. Heeeee... The cashier back then must be thinking that we are stupid and crazy people for buying those oranges yang buruk. Oh well. Regardless of everything, it was still fun!! We are keeping the tradition going, though those who threw the oranges were not all chinese! :P

Yesterday, mum told me to go "lau sang" with my friends. "Lau sang" is the proses of mixing all the ingredients in "yee sang" which looks somethings like the picture below. According to Mr. Wikipedia, Yusheng , yee sang or yuu sahng also known as lo hei (Cantonese) is a Teochew-style raw fish salad. It usually consists of strips of raw fish (most commonly salmon), mixed with shredded vegetables and a variety of sauces and condiments, among other ingredients. Yusheng literally means "raw fish" but since "fish (鱼)" is commonly conflated with its homophone "abundance (余)", Yúshēng (鱼生) is interpreted as a homophone for Yúshēng (余升) meaning an increase in abundance. Therefore, yusheng is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.

BUT I DON'T KNOW WHERE TO FIND THIS THING LEHHHH!!! Who wants to go hunting for this with me? Jom kita gaul-menggaul!! :D By the way, Happy Chap Goh Mei everyone!! Go throw oranges, parit ka, longkang ka, or perhaps river ka if you can find any.

Will blog bout my CNY celebration at home when I am free.Last day of February already. Time flies. Damnit!! Uhhhh.... Tik tok tik tok tik tok~~ >.<"

As we go on, we remember...

All the times we had together,
And as our lives change from whatever,
We will still be friends forever.

Bestarians of 2005 batch had a reunion last week at Windbell Restaurant, Tanjung Aru. We had a steamboat session occupying two tables. It was simply a spontaneous plan (I think!) organized by Kim. For me, there was nothing amazing about that place but it was the people present there that made everything amazing that night. It was really great to see everyone again especially those whom I have not seen for such a long time like Kim, Christine and Amirah. The last time I saw these people was nothing less than five years ago when we graduated from high school. As for the rest, it was definitely cool to catch up with them again, too! Time flies, no? :)

Ini budak ganjil - the non Bestarian. Nonetheless, we are all Franciscan :P
Our dead gorgeour Head Girl, Sonia

Penolong Ketua Pengawas Tersayang, Kim
Our adorable School Captain, Daph ;)
We are never stingy with our big warm hugs ;P
Cikgu Jafri dengan jelingan mengancamnya!
Cikgu Jafri, who was also one of the main photographer of the night.
Cikgu Nurul, our mommy!
**Pssttt... did I mention Cikgu Jafri is our daddy? Yes yes, pasangan ini kedua-duanya guru kami yang tersayang.**

This is how we catch up with each other. Excited with each others' stories.
We even had photography lesson that night.
Random photos of the night :)

Group photos itu suatu kemestian, wwwwwwwwwwweeee!!!
Will we think about tomorrow like we think about now?
Can we survive it out there? Can we make it somehow?
I guess I thought that this would never end
And suddenly it's like we're women and men
Will the past be a shadow that will follow us round?
Will these memories fade when I leave this town
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye
Keep on thinking it's a time to fly.

Hope to see you guys soon again.
Near and far, let us do this again. Everyone has to be present.
What say you?

One Random Afternoon

One random afternoon during the CNY holiday, I met up with a friend at 1Borneo after spending the morning in the cement plant where my dad works (for my Final Year Project purpose @_@). We were suppose to be watching movie but I was not feeling well that afternoon. Therefore, decision were made - lunch and proceed back home. It was an impulse plan to stop by the beach for a while (to get the junkieess WOOHHOOOO!!) when we were on the way back home. We ended staying for quite some time. Purpose? Camwhore. More pics available in my facebook :)

Did I mention the price of this camwhoring session was a parking ticket from DBKK (Dewan Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu)? Nonetheless, it was a great day out. And yes, I heart my home cuz I heart beach. Oh, though Tanjung Aru Beach kotor is less beautiful than before, I still ♥ thee.

Is this your handphone number?

Try this out.

Do some mathematical operations and it guesses your phone number at the end. Just some maths magic :P Have fun trying!

1) Key-in the first 3 digit of your handphone number(not the 01x number) into the calculator
2) Multiply by 80
3) Add 1
4) Multiply by 250
5) Plus last four digit of phone number
<6) Plus last four digit of phone number again
7) Minus 250
8) Divide by 2 at last

Is the result of those calculations your handphone number?

21 Guns

A friend shared this video with me when I was chatting with him. I have heard this song numerous times playing on the radio. Yet, this song version by Green Day featuring American Idiot casts which is way better than the original one never fail to amaze me. Beautiful!

Do you know what's worth fighting for?
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?

Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside?
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

When you're at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul

Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn't pass
Nothing's ever built to last
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

Did you try to live on your own
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand too close to the fire
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone?

When it's time to live and let die
And you can't get another try
Something inside this heart has died
You're in ruins

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms, give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky, you and I

Way Back Into Love

By Hugh Grant featuring Haley Bennett

I've been living with a shadow overhead
I've been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
I've been lonely for so long
Trapped in the past
I just can't seem to move on

I've been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
Just in case I ever need them again someday
I've been setting aside time
To clear a little space in the corners of my mind

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
Oh oh oh

I've been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I've been searching but i just don't see the signs
I know that it's out there
There's got to be something for my soul somewhere

I've been looking for someone to shed some light
Not somebody just to get me through the night
I could use some direction
And I'm open to your suggestions

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart again
I guess I'm hoping you'll be there for me in the end

Oh oh oh

There are moments when I don't know if it's real
Or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration
Not just another negotiation

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love
And if I open my heart to you
I'm hoping you'll show me what to do
And if you help me to start again
You know that I'll be there for you in the end

Oh oh oh

A soundtrack from the movie "Music and Lyrics".
I used to love this song a lot and I am still loving it. Enjoy! :)

It is a sunny Saturday out there today. I am stuck in my room trying to study for my upcoming midterm paper this upcoming Monday. My last midterm paper, sob sob >.<"

Anyway, my life has been pretty dramatic lately. Indeed it is interesting to watch tv drama or other's drama but it is not fun at all being inside the drama. Things were just so complicated everywhere and everything just happened at the same time, not to mention the wrong time.

During this period, people hurt each other and got hurt somewhere along the line, whether they were intentionally or unintentionally. On my behalf, I seek for forgiveness from those who were involved for those pain caused. I know, we are all trying to be the best that we can but things just ain't easy as it seems. Things just get out of control sometimes. However, please do know that I have never pointed my fingers to anyone all this time because I know neither of us wanted things to turn out this way. No one is to be blamed in anything because it takes both hands to clap.

For now, I would like to put everything aside as I need to get back on track. I have been slacking off for too long. Everything was pending because I was so caught up in the drama. Give me a break please. I need to breathe. Many thanks to those who were there with me when all of these were just so hard to take in. Just when I thought I was alone, I was proven wrong. The little things in life sometimes do make major differences in life. Hugs.

With the hope tomorrow will be a better day, I just can't wait for everything to be over. I know, for better or worse, this whole drama will eventually be something I would laugh over one day later.
