Came across these two songs out of nowhere... Apparently I came across a few nice ones but these two touched me the most... Geeeshhhhh...
Lyrics... [Copy & Paste]
Lyrics [Copy & Paste]

This is yet another favourite of mine by Rainie Yang... Love everything about this song, the singer herself, her hair!, the song, the lyrics, the feel, I mean everything...
Simply LOVE the phrases prior to the song and after the song :
Before : 如果我们只是擦肩而过，何必在彼此身上留下伤痕。。。
After : 每次仰望天空，我都有勇气再相信，总有一天我会拥有一段真正属于自己的爱情。。。
I'm longing for a karaoke session! Itchy throat to sing my lungs out!

A sudden feel of trying to share this song. It's nice tho. Here, I wish all my friends the best in whatever they're doing. Be it male or female. =)
[ 好朋友只是朋友 ]
Things always happen for a reason. We just have to face up to that very reason. Be it a fake smile or a sincere smile from deep within you, it's no harm by smiling to the world. =) That's life.
Pull it through. Time will lead us the way out. To the final destination that we're supposed to be heading. Be patient. Hold on.
This is another video which I do personally like it although my Chinese ain't that good but still, UNDERSTAND-ABLE. =P
Oh well, to all my friends out there, 加油吧！！！^^

Nah... I'm gonna talk about the second day of my trip to KK, Sabah in this very post. Again, woke up on the 18th of July [before dawn], took a quick shower even though I was well aware that I'm gonna get myself ended up like salted fish by soaking myself in the ever-salty ocean. Talking about oceans, it's LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! ^^
# 0 Yeah, it's ME snorkelling! From AM to PM!!! *HEARTS*
Set off from Jesselton Point. Paid a freaking cheap 50 MYR in order to "rent" all needed equipments for snorkelling and also to inter-transfer between two islands. Since my sis requested for Manukan and Sapi islands, we chose these.
# 1 Jesselton Point
# 2 Jetty
I LOVE SPEEDBOAT! Having to feel the breeze brushing through my hair and skin, OMGOSH! Perhaps I shall try bungee jumping or skydiving eh??? *Hearts* BTW, I FAILED in trying PARASAILING!!! That's the only regret! Was too shy to ask until the end of the day when Krys told me it was actually fully booked. *Cries*
For this post, I'll let pictures do the talking. ^^
We're reaching! We're reaching!

Now, on my next visit to Sabah, it's gonna be Mamutik island, I suppose. Or perhaps, Mantanani island. Prior to Mantanani, I have to make sure I'm confidence enough to swim! First thing first, LEARN HOW TO SWIM! =)
To end this post, let me share this sunset shot I took while we're on the way back.
Next Up, W.I.L.D.L.I.F.E. =)

Now, who will read word by word till the end of the post? I really doubt that at times but I ain't gonna doubt myself for typing out word by word. =) And it's gonna be a personal naggy post. Teehee!
Last July, I mean yeah, last July 2010, I've booked my air tickets flying with AirAsia from Johor Bahru to Kota Kinabalu on this very July . A very EARLY pre-plan indeed! Guess what, it's only 35 MYR for TWO-WAY with all taxes included. Oh yeah... ^^
I'm not a gourmet and so I shall skip food posts which I personally think that something which tastes nice to me MAY NOT taste the same to the others, so on and so forth. =) [eg. Mango Lo Mai Chi, to me, it's not as fan-ta-bu-lous-ly as being described. Ded.]
Upon arrivals, arhem, *beating chest proudly*, we were being greeted by Sabah's most friendly ushers in their traditional costumes.
From left without costumes : Jaime, Yan, Me, San
How proud huh? I felt like a supertar! Sheesssshhh!!! Tak boleh tahan!!! Apparently, WE WERE THE THICK-SKINNED ones to approach them for a group shot... LOL... We were being greeted by our hosts instead, Krys & Donna. =)
Tell you what, no shots taken when we were about to land in KK coz... EVERYTHING was in PITCH-BLACK then when we look out from the airplane's windows. Hak sei yan ah!!! For sure lah since we're flying at night... Deng... Missed out on the wondrous azure skies and crystal clear view of the oceans swarming the heart of the KK Town.
Please do pardon me if you hate the way I'm writing... The facts that I'm in the mood to write in this way instead of being so-called "professional" LOL
Nothing much done on the first night there apart from the night breeze at Tanjung Aru beach and our dinner. =)
On breaking dawn, I was already on my set of attire for the day. All well prepared while waiting for the girls to drag their butts up from bed. And guess what... the daybreak there in East-Malaysia is hours earlier, I bet we are well-aware of that just by paying a little more attention on Geography alright. Geez.
Starting the day off with a Sunday, how could you miss the Sunday Gaya Street (SGS)? Apparently, it's 17th of July for the day. SGS is only open on a Sunday alright. It's always recommended to BARGAIN for a good price in a "market" and hence the aunty-ness in me flaunted my tail to cut down the price for this very hat that I'm posing for on the right. Cut from 15 MYR to 10 MYR only to realize I can get it at only 5.90 MYR at a Low-Price-Supermart nearby! &*^%$#@&!
There are indeed lots of stalls selling cute and colourful souvenirs ranging from keychains to fridge magnets to potteries to T-shirts to whatever you felt like buying for your friends or families. What you see is what you want, and what you paid is what you get! LOL.. Okay, I'm starting to crap.
But this doggie is definitely something you can't own! I bet this hound is there to track down thieves. Uh huh... A detective doggie dressed up like a colourful hotdog. I wonder what and how owners will dress their pet dogs like in the upcoming Dogathon 2011 this coming October 2! With the theme, Doggie In Wonderland! Ok, out of topic! Anything, get to me, I might be able to get the info for you! ^^
Alright, apart from souvenirs, you'll never miss out seeing stalls selling clothes, food, fruits, DOGGIES, CHICKS, DUCKLINGS, FISHES, HAMSTERS, housewares, etc etc. It's kinda crowded and I don't feel like flaunting my not-so-glamour cammie. LOL. Crapz. BTW, I regret not getting another beach shawl from the auntie. It's like super duper cheap compared to all the places I saw in KK and also, JB. 24 MYR with a so-called "clutch" to create different designs, cheap no? A picha to show you the ones my sis bought. The price went as high as 50++ MYR in the Filipinos Market. Crazy. O_O
And by the way, if you were to get anything apart from pearls, perhaps SGS is the best place! Everything there that I can remember were way cheaper than in the Filipinos Market. ^^
Next stop after SGS was the KK Waterfront, Esplanade. It's a cool place to be. The view is just too good. I have yet to understand "PERFECT" and I wouldn't use the word for anything. But if you hate getting yourself burn up like a dried leaf, perhaps it's a good place to chill out for a date when the sun sets. =)
Here to share some pichas ^^
# 3 With Esplanade's Dolphin
# 4 Looking out for floating corpse JKJK LOL
# 5 Tee hee, here we go!!! JUMPIE!!!
After a great time of burning ourselves under the sun, the next destination was Tanjung Aru Beach looking back that the previous night we could not have a visionary satisfaction. =P The Avocado drink there is popular so as their guava. =) It's like your trip there won't be a complete one without a bite of the guava. LOL
Photo-sharing time ^^
# 6 First Beach Tanjung Aru
# 7 Beach Babies LOL
# 8 Narcissism LOL
# 9 Don't you ever step on my toes!
I love beaches. I just do. If I could have everything that I wanted, it would be a totally isolated quiet little virgin beach owned to myself, spreading my body, soul and mind on the nakedly delicate fine white sands, feeling the breeze brushing thru my skin and the sea singing to my favourite tunes. How wondrous can that be! Someone, please DON'T wake me up from my dream. Uh huh...
BUT, HOW COULD I EVER OWN ONE? I'M NOT A MULTIMILLIONAIRE OR ANYTHING! *CRIES* *SELF-PATTING*
"I'm walking away from the troubles in my life, I'm walking away oh to find a better day~"
oooppss, I'm singing again! ^^
Say goodbye to the beach... And heading out for the next beach....
# 11 Tanjung Likas ^^
# 13 Somehow, I love this shot below ^^
The day is not done! All of us went back for a quick shower before the next destination! Special thanks to Krys's aunt for making us dinner! *hearts*
Next up, PERDANA PARK! This is where you can watch the singing/dancing fountain! I bet it's gonna be a romantic place to be for couples. LOL. But it became a dancing-playground for kids like us! Too cute to be resisted! Pengsan..
# 14 PERDANA PARK
And I have no idea of where the "A" went. Perhaps some kids were obsessed in getting A and needed a karma on that, and so, they'd stolen the silver-tinted-A and buried it under their bed.
# 15 Dancing Fountain in various colours =)
# 16 Fooling around while the fountain's dancing to the songs played XD
# 17 Monkeying around =P #
Oh well, I think to mark up the post for today, I'm gonna share this... Smile to the world ^^
Stay tuned to... Beach Babies for the upcoming post ^^

I've been absence from the blogosphere for so long...
Lately, I'm so tired. Emotionally. Physically. And hence, the absence. Pending posts are all being deleted for no reasons.
I guess it's time for me to get active back in sharing stuffs in my life. To you, my friends out there whom I've been sharing my life stories, my journeys with throughout my varsity life. =)
Here, a video to share. My childhood heroes. I bet you guys are alert that they'll be coming to Malaysia for their Gravity Tour on the 7th of October 2011, don't cha? It's WESTLIFE, with TONIGHT, one of my favourites that never fails to get me emotional. =)
I can now imagine myself tearing up while they're singing. They never fail to touch me. BTW, here you go, for the tickets info CLICK HERE
I HEART WESTLIFE!!!

Few years back, I was so tempted by my seniors' experience/adventures for the Nation's Turtle Conservation Program. From then on, I've been harping on a chance for me volunteering in the program.
Just days ago, Dr.Juanita, together with her research members/students came over to my faculty for a talk. She shared her experiences. And I did, for once and again, tempted with a mission-in-heart. I'm wanting to play a part in it. To help. To learn. To experience what they've went through. You know, research and reserve programs are of tedious works. It's of ceaseless commitment, a lifelong commitment. It's like human feeding themselves every single day. If human do not feed themselves, they'll DIE of hunger. Sooner or later, they'll extinct. The same thing applies to the sea turtles. If we do continue to dismantle the little chance for them to breathe, they'll be gone, forever.
SEATRU, the Sea Turtle Research Unit, based in UMT began their operation back in 1984. Their main reserve area is Chagar Hutang, Pulau Redang, Terengganu. It is a non-government organization (NGO) and receive no financial aids from the government in their conservation programs but only for their research. Get what I mean? I hope you do.
But the question is... How can one be conducting a research when there's an extinction on that particular *subject* being studied? I SAY, Financial Aids should be given to support the conservation first.
For Malaysia, we have like FOUR (4) out of the total of SEVEN (7) types of sea turtles in the oceans, namely, the
- Green Turtle [most abundant in Malaysia.]
- Olive Ridley
Why does SEATRU supports the conservation program??? Why is it so important??? Why turtles???
- Important indicator of coastal health and marine environment [local/global - as in pollution]
- Conduct long migration [Turtles are long-distance migrators. They can swim up to thousands of kilometres in days.]
- Decades to mature [Approximately up to 25 years]
- Nest-site fidelity [Turtles are faithful to their obligations and are responsible. The females, for example, will camouflage itself and mis-direct predators on the eggs' nest.]
- Natal homing [Turtles will only return to their natal birthplace to reproduce. I SAY this is very touching. They will swim thousands and thousands of kilometres away in order to get back to their origins in order to lay their eggs. Human, on the other hand, can't wait to migrate to their country of interest.]
I SAY : Nature Lovers, Turtles Lover, if you're really dedicated in devoting yourselves for the volunteer programme, DO secure yourselves with the limited slot with the PRIORITY BOOKING which will be opened from 16th to the 21st of January 2011.
Selected volunteer will be informed by the 22nd of January 2011. [click for more]
For normal booking, it will be opened for public on the 2nd of February 2011. YES, and I will be registering for this! Wish me luck!
Alright, for the slots, please CLICK HERE !
Oh well, you don't really have to be part of the volunteer programme in order to support their acts. You can actually do a lot, say... by purchasing items whereby the profits will all be donated to SEATRU funds.
Besides that, you can also do your part as a considerate nation. Avoid eating turtles eggs! Predators are constantly hunting for the eggs and hatched youngs and how could you, human, born with the ability to
control *compel* yourselves still savour on the fragile little creatures which is at the peak of extinction? Do you know that out of a hundred of youngs, only ONE can survive? Do you know that it takes up to 25 years for one young turtle to mature in order to reproduce? Do your "rough" calculations.
Extinction is a demolishing process. Once it's gone, it'll be gone forever. Now, what can you do?
- NO HELIUM BALLOONS. Yes, it's romantic to be releasing balloons into the air for weddings. But, balloons running out of the helium gas will eventually fell into the oceans. Turtles which feed on them will die of being choked. Humans are happy. Turtles are the ones suffering.
- NO LITTERING. Do you not know that your litters, particularly, plastic bag which coincidently looked like a jelly fish once being washed offshore or floating on the oceans will trigger the sea turtles to feed on it and choked on it?
- TURTLES FOR RITUAL PURPOSES??? Ah, debatable??? We can do nothing unless petitions are being entertained.
All in all, there are just a lot more on common senses that one should know about conserving and saving the mother nature's creations.
I think that's all for me for now! Just a random sharing. It's not as if you guys gonna read every single words being written up here. LOL. Anyways, I've done my part on sharing. Now, what can you do? =)
P/S : This post is solely for personal sharing purposes only. Any discrepancy in information is much greatly regretted. =)

This is the day of my day for today. A sudden craze and crave for it the whole day! Taylor does really has her own style of singing/telling her stories.
At times, I felt the song. It's nice tho. =)
Have a good weekend people!
Tuesday, January 4, 2011
It's the fourth day of a very new year but it's simply just another day to me, as usual. People do have their New Year resolutions made but to me, resolutions can be made every single day, anytime. It doesn't really have to be made year by year.
For me, I'll just wish for whatever came thru my mind, anytime of the day, night, week, month, year or whatsoever that could you can name "the period of time". At this point of time, I'm longing to find back, to meet, to catch up with my long-lost childhood mates. The ones that peeked thru my the slits in between the forced-closed windows of my aunt's room's, peeping at how me and my sisters danced
gracefully outrageously horrible to the 90's Boybands pops ; Eavesdropped on how me and my sisters shrieking to the ever catching hits of the 90's.
I MISS THEM.
You know, I don't know how we managed to communicate. They are of mixed-parentage. Mum's a Malay. Dad's a Caucasian. They are, of pretty faces for sure. Our ways of communication was basically based on our awkward actions and Rojak Language [a mix of Malay, English, and Mandarin]. We were in primary school then. Christopher and Bobby, the twin brothers were|are three years older than I am [if I were not wrong], Gina, the pretty lass was|is of the same age as me. All three were siblings. Fendi, their Malay cousin, my neighbour at that time.
I REALLY WANNA SEE THEM AGAIN.
I was always anticipating for the trio to visit Fendi, in the hope that I could brag around with them in our ever *extraordinary* ways. Once, I hopped onto Chris's back and his mouth hit on his knee. His teeth were bleeding then. I was in real guilt but I think he
loved it, =P since we're the so-called rumoured-pair. LOL Ahh, sweet. I'm missing the fun with them. =D
I LOST THEM
The problem is that we've lost TOTAL contact and I could never see them again. Fendi had moved a decade ago and I do rarely go back to my grandma's old house since we've all moved elsewhere. This is hard. Fate, I'll say the probability is like infinitely LOW. T_____T No, I don't know their full names. All I have in mine are nothing but the memories and their calling names. Pathetic.
I HOPE TO FIND THEM BACK.
I do hope that somehow they'll stumble upon this post some time. I know this is very silly and impossible but, it's a wish. A wish to a longing heart to see the friends for once again.
Magic Words to a longing heart : Cempaka 18
If you're C, B, G, or F you'll know what that means =)
