INSPIRED.

You guys must be wondering what finally made me update my blog......the thing is I'm Inspired by someone's post!... So sad that it's no longer To Inspire (sggs edboarders!!) but rather i need others to inspire me....there are too many things going on in my life right now.....too much to be blogged....

I used to enjoy life....and everything that comes with it.....I like wasting time (my favourite past time, no kidding eh)...I like staring blankly into the ceiling with soothing music on the background...I like to chat on msn.....I like playing violin.....I like attending orchestra practices....I like to chat over the phone like nobody's business with my close pals.....I like to spend time with my family and friends...I like to be active...I like to get involved in projects and succeed in them...I like the feeling of achievement...I like going up on stage getting prizes....BUT

ALL of these are the things that i am no longer able to do....maybe I should add a suffix -ed to all the likes above....

Life here in UM is really crazy....or like how my friend Reuben used to say to me "madness"!!! I have tests (mid-sems) every single week from the 2nd week of this semester up till now!..I used to like tests and exams...I looked forward to them but not ever since I came here.....I got so stressed up that i no longer know how to let go and relax.....I get tensed muscles all the time....I am deprived of sleep to the extent I now have permanent dark eye circles....

And all the activities are draining off the little of energy left in me.....I changed from someone who was able to hold important posts, take pressure, committed, multi-task and yet achieve what i desired to a person I no longer knew....I became reclusive....I only want to be in my room (hostel) and do not want to take part in any activities.....I no longer have the confidence to deliver.....as a result, I quitted UM Debate training on the 2nd week here (I got into that because I won the Intercollege Orientation Debate, by luck i guess).....I then quitted Pesta Tanglung UM in my 2nd month here.......What more can i say?

I, being a person who loves to visit new places, gain new experiences didn't join the Chinese Community (CC) trip.....and didn't join most of the meetings and outings....but there are also events which I can't say NO as an answer.....For instance, the recently concluded Entrepreneurship Day.....it's part of my Basic Entrepreneurship course (yeah you read correctly, I'm doing Science...but this is Business....it's a mandatory course for all...even if you're medical student)....

and then Pesta Tanglung CC came along (last night that was).....I was the emcee....I spoke minimal mandarin for two reasons...One, the administrators disallow the usage of mandarin or somehow that's what I was told..I have got my D to write me one Chinese script actually before I was told about that...Two, I'm half a banana who of course can communicate fluently in Mandarin but hello, it's communicative mandarin and not the formal kind needed to host an event ok! I can't even read.....how do you expect me to use all the formal words....but at the end of it, someone showed displeasure by saying this to me "Wahh...ohhh now you can speak mandarin d hoh?" Sarcastic bugger.....I only got one thing to say to this bugger "You're sick and stop making yourself so low and shallow" shame on you for being supposedly a senior!

and I figured...the audience didn't know what "Let's give them another round of applause" means......wow....I'm surprised....I don't want to talk much about this anyways...but I have done my best to accomodate the VERY VERY last minute changes.....and be gone with it....

Next up on my list is two more tests next Thursday...then it's study week already....I have not studied a single bit of anything....aiks....going home on 24th.....then having my finals from 3rd nov to 17th nov......I will be off for home on the 18th....I can't wait to chill out with my secondary school pals...Guys, Good Luck in STPM o!!

I think I ought to change my blogname soon to LIFE...instead of DREAMS...because Dreams no longer exist in my life here.....*a big sigh* and off to bed~~

Biohealth Science

Many people have asked me what is Biohealth Science all about actually...Everyone only knows about medicine, dentistry and pharmacy...hah hah....

This is the excerpt from UM's website :

The purpose of the interdisciplinary program is to produce graduates who have sound knowledge of biological sciences with particular reference to its application to medical and health-related fields. Biohealth Science deals with the scientific basis of health and disease in humans and is currently one of the most rapidly developing areas in biological sciences.

The B.Sc. (Biohealth Science) has been developed for very able students with strong interest and inclination towards health-related disciplines. Students have the opportunity to study fundamental biology in addition to a wide variety of biohealth subjects such as physiology, genetics, microbiology, immunology, pharmacology, biochemistry, neurobiology, histology, health care and DNA recombinant technology.

Entry into the programme is competitive. The programme receives hundreds of applications each year, but accepts only a limited number of students yearly. Selection is based on availability of places and academic merit.

This programme is a major in Biohealth Science. Upon graduation, candidates will be conferred with Bachelor of Science degree.

“It started as a random choice, but led to an enjoyable journey of knowledge. That is what Biohealth Science had offered me for the past years. It is a course which has equipped me with knowledge as well as practical experience in the forever-enchanting field of biology and life. Exposure to histology, physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, microbiology and genetics makes Biohealth Science one of the most challenging courses.”
Former Student


I personally chose this because I really do have strong interest in medical fields...but i never wanted to be a doctor or a dentist......heh heh.....Organic Chemistry got me becoming scared of Pharmacy....which apparently is said to be harder than medicine or dentistry......

Leaving for KL on 27th....

I mentioned before in another post that 19th of June is D-day!...It's the day I will know my fate....and fate is, I got into Malaysia's Top University...guess what??not the APEX university though....hah hah...it's noneother than the glorious Universiti Malaya.....

I got into the Science faculty.......majoring in Biohealth Science.....Actually yes this was the course i chosen....I chose this over Biomedical Science.....=)....and the best part, it's only a three-year degree....saves a heap lot of time eh...considering the fact that I already saved a year doing Matriculation instead of STPM....

It caught me by surprise that I got UM....I was all the while expecting to get into UKM....not like i think it's better...but more like I applied more courses from UKM than UM.....all the better that i got UM....because I have been wanting to enter....all i can say is....I am lucky!

But, nevertheless life is never perfect. or at least that's what I believe in......I will be in different universities with my D....he will enter into the dentistry faculty of UKM......the least i can say is too bad for us and too sad for us.......we will of course try our utmost best to meet.....(he will be in KL city...whereas I would be in KL-Selangor border).....but I am happy for him that he got what he wanted....although he will be happier if he got UM.......this is the test that we are both ready to take.....

Guess that's all.....I haven't packed...ouch!

Braced, finally.....

I got my braces on Friday, 12th of June.....my first colours being Purple (dark) and Light purplish-blue.......3 days on, I am beginning to feel the abrasions effects....Now, I am protecting my inner lips with dental wax which is minty-flavoured.....and I still can't chew my food....

My food has been taken wholesale into my gastrointestinal tract for 3 whole days! Hopefully there won't be any digestive problems stemming from this or else it will drive me crazy....

So, below I attached the video (recorded on my handphone, NOT by professional)...so don't complain!!...haha....

Conclusion of An Important Chapter

Yes, the title states it all! With the last post on trips I went on during my Matriculation days, it signifies the conclusion of an important chapter of my life. Now, I am ready to embark on a new journey that will bring me to my destiny. Up to this point of my life, everything seemed like a routine everyone goes through : growing up, entering primary school, then secondary....senior prom comes along....friends from the years all separated into different countries, states, colleges and elsewhere....then comes the final step - university.....

Come 19th of June, I will know where my destiny brings me. I leave everything to God's will on which university I would be offered....But, definitely I will be thankful if I get any of my eight choices of courses....so pray for me!....cheerio~
Con't : Trips

13/02/2009 : Gua Kelam - Taman Ular Perlis - Kuala Perlis

JPP (Jawatankuasa Perwakilan Pelajar) or in another words, Students' Council's Biro Fizikal organised this trip and we, from Biro Penerangan dan Perhubungan Luar was invited along...and our trip that day was nevertheless interesting. The snakes did freak me out a bit though, otherwise it was a nice experience.


It took us quite a lot to get to that place for a picture...haha....and it's really slippery.....

This was the bus which took us to our destinations......for one of the last times....

21/02/2009 : Lye Huat Garden
No pictures for this trip as first of all, there are only animals and more animals there. For I am not an animal person, the pictures i snapped were merely for my coursework and nothing worth publishing....haha...and if you wonder why on earth did i visit the place given i am not an animal person.....it's a compulsory trip for ALL biology students in KMK.....as part of our Practical session on Biodiversity...oh, how much I hated this chapter! 100-over pages long....nope, no colourful pictures but merely the characteristics of all the different species, phylum, subphylum, class, order....bla bla.....the only part that i hated in Biology for my second semester.....hah hah...

BANDING!!

yea...so hmm....sorry for all the no-updates done lately.....i will put on hold my posts on trips...but rather...post on another thing that is happening in my life......that is...to have braces fixed.....

So, today I went to the orthodontist.....to replace my fallen off separator (which i love so much because the colour is so nice....) and to be told by the nurse that i can actually fix the molar bands today....so better still.....i negogiate for an earlier appointment (i was given an appointment next week for molar banding and on the 26th for bonding- fixing everything else).......and so i was told if i fix my bands today, i can come back next friday for bonding! yay.....instead of 2 months for the first four appointments.....i am doing it in TWO WEEKS!....XD but that also means paying more within this one month....lol....

My concern is that if i get it fixed on 26th, i probably need to report for university on 27th and should complications arise, it's harder to manage.......so thank goodness she could give me an earlier appointment.....for the doc is fully booked till July.....uh-oh.....lucky me....

BUT......if you know me, I am such a food-lover that I will do anything just to savour my foods.... even with four tooths missing, I could still munch on hard foods....lol....albeit it hurts.....

It's my mom's birthday today and most of it, I am going to have a hard time during our dinner tonight...grrr....and my granny's 80th birthday dinner is this saturday...and so....again...food is going to be hard on me.....PLUS....my family luncheon (because my bro and sis-in-law are back) on Sunday.........FOOD and MORE FOOD......haihhh.....that's all i can do~

Guess what??Yepp....I went to Langkawi (All-sponsored) *wink wink* But the side note is, I almost did not make it for the trip. This was because I have been looking forward to go home (back to Penang) for that weekend after being unable to make it back home for more than a month. And then, there came another bad news. My other 2 chinese gal pals pulled out of the trip at the very last minute (a day before the trip). So, D wasn't very keen on me going being the only girl with 3 other chinese guys (all of whom are my close pals actually). But, I can't resist it because it's my first time to Langkawi and since it's paid for, why not? I'm not going to bore you with my ramblings but rather, the pictures will tell u about my trip. Pictures paint a thousand words, don't they?



5 - 7/02/2009 : Langkawi



To proceed or not? >.<



That's a tired me resting by the well!






Nice decor in the restaurant we had our dinner





L-R : Khang Way, Me, Zhe Yi and Wei Xhine





Pantai Cenang during sunset...pretty...






Ain't this nice???the Oriental Village


L-R: Wei Xhine, Khang Way and Me (in the cable car)




The view from the cable car


That's it! Mountain range in view...




The suspension bridge of Gunung Mat Cincang



See the gluttony in me?...wakakaka Xp



A picture with foreign tourists (ps. the guys insisted!*roll eyes*)




The top station of the cable car stands at 710m above sea level. The view is exemplary, the air is cool and fresh. I'm sure going to make a second trip back there for the cable car. It's cool...we took two rounds of the cable car haha....coz the air was too nice....and the rest of our group were slow....


Gondola



Underwater World Langkawi



A bunch of us posing for a picture at UWL


Penguin : The signature attraction of UWL





What is a trip to UWL without a picture of a fish??hehe...I like the pokey pokey stuff....

I was scared like anything having that parrot on my shoulders, but well, luckily it didn't scratch me or pull my necklace. And, it seemed to be smiling there....=D oh ya, that was in Bird Paradise Langkawi.


It was not just simply a bird park, but it has many other animals too like peacock, monkeys, etc. And it has got beautiful rainforest setting in there, just like in this picture : a waterfall.



Four of us on board the ferry, taking the last picture before each of us dozed off except for that Khang Way who insisted on transfering all the photos from my handphone because he knew I would be too lazy to lend him my phone on any other days. Haha....very smart.....


That's it, Bye bye to Langkawi.

Ps. All pictures were taken by my handphone only. So, don't complain! ;)

More trips to come....
