Dear Biasiswa Kerajaan Negeri Sabah (BKNS),

                 My wallet is currently occupied with just dust and some old movie tickets and rubbish I keep putting on hold to get rid of. I would also like to state that I am now indebted to a number of people (Which, thank goodness, are not loansharks. lol). Orang Melayu cakap 'Hutang keliling pinggang'. Therefore, please, please, PLEASE let  me have my money by, at least, THIS WEEK. Thank you very much.

I really need my money.

Yesterday we had our first ever lab session of Basic Navigation and Seamanship. It was the first lab session I'd ever attend in my whole life that actually requires us to jump into the ocean (With life jackets on, of course. I wouldn't be blogging now, otherwise. *Imagining the sound of If I Die Young by The Band Perry*)

The lab session took place at the jetty of our very own UMS.

During the briefing

HAHAHA! Guess who volunteered for the demonstration??? It's US! The Monkeys aka Munyits!
(Was actually hoping for extra marks. LOL)
Before the suicide jump. Shake your fear away. I was the one in purple :D 
1,2,3 JUMP!

*No pictures of us jumping. LOL*

Immediately skip to the ones of us already emerging from the water.

Can you see me? The one with an arm poking out asking for help. I was the only one shouting "Tolong! TOLONG!," as if I was really drowning, despite being concious that I was wearing a life jacket and have zero possibility of being swallowed by the ocean. HOW EMBARRASSING. One of the workers even sarcastically said to his friend "Nah, pergi kau tolong tu. Lemas tu dia." 
Okay, fine.

Yes! YES! We made it! Land!!!! We missed you like crazy!!!


Syl a.k.a Kichil
Yours truly a.k.a. Ching :P
Just when we thought we've survived and our lives were no longer in danger, the Instructor suddenly announced that we actually had to jump into the ocean for another round. SHIT.

So here goes the second briefing.

Bha. Go, go, go! Jump, jump, jump!

Finally reached the boathouse!  

Alhamdulillah.. Masih hidup hahaha!
That's all for today! 

Ciao~! ;D

Yet Another Goodbye

Today we lost a beloved baby kitty. AGAIN.

R.I.P Loudy. We miss you SO much! I even cried in front of the DKP today when I heard about the bad news (Not that I intended to. I HATE crying in public. Which is why I went to the toilet straight away. But then, when I saw Neej inside of the DKP I suddenly got teary-eyed all over again. And I asked her to bring me outside. Yeah, the thing is, I breakdown easily when I'm near to the person I'm close with).

For those of you who watched Mr. Popper's Penguins, you must know why I named her Loudy ;)

It was because she had this unique high-pitched, volumized, loud voice when she meowed, just like Loudy in Mr. Popper's Penguins (Except that the penguin didn't meow, of course). The house now suddenly feels very quiet without her. Even my Dad couldn't stop talking about Loudy, which makes me miss her more.

Loudy passed away when my Mum was on her way taking her to the vet. She heard Loudy breathed her last while she was at it and stopped at the side of the road to check on her. She knew it. There was nothing else she could do. She couldn't bring herself to drive, for a while. She parked and took her time to let it all in. Yeah, everyone in my house ♥ animals. 

Oh, Loudy. At least you're in heaven, now. You're safe anf sound. YOU'RE HAPPY. We will never ever forget you :')

The last kitty in the vid was Loudy.

Money Doesn't Grow On Trees

Uh-huh. And because of that, we have to earn it (Unless you're filthy rich. LOL. Kidding, kidding). I don't have a lot of work experience. In my whole life, I've only worked part-time in two places, i.e. Parkson (Past a.k.a. Sudah berlalu dan jangan dikenang) and..
Star City Conference-Event Centre. My current workplace~
I'm working as a part-time food server. The job is quite simple, actually. You'll only be called when there is an event, or something like that. Thus, you do not need to attend it daily. In fact, you can turn it down whenever you're busy or you don't feel like working, at all. Extremely relevant for a student like me. TeeHee. All you have to do is constantly pour the Chinese Tea, bring in and bring out food, and clean the tables you're assigned to.

Before the even started. The event last night was 1Malaysia some sort of gathering, but all I can see are Chinese. I don't get it =.=
The first guest arrives.
(Credits to Kak Yana for the pic)
Apart from getting free meals before the event starts, us part-timers also get to grab the served food. For me, I only want the desserts. Yum yum~! Last night, my partner even helped me smuggle a couple of large bottles of soft drinks (Which is actually forbidden, but no one seems to give a damn). Hahahaha.
Moi partner and yours truly. (I refuse to reveal my fatigued face)
Oh! Have I mentioned the pay, yet? It's RM5/hour! That's quite a lot, okayyyy :) The highest rate in Sabah, so far. Even Sutera Harbour doesn't pay their staffs for more than RM3.50/hour.

Can you see the picture above?? I borrowed my cousin's slacks for work yesterday, but it turned out that the slacks was torn in the back. So I HAD to borrow the spare slacks the company keeps. I LOOKED LIKE A MOTHER OF THREE. It had put me in a bad mood throughout the night. Thank God my partner was a gentleman! Bukan yang tahu curi tulanggggg ja...

When the event is over..

The one with the awkward pose is Nicki, my cousin. That's just the way she acts when people are trying to take photos of her. Hahahah. The one beside her is my sis.
Candid pic of Nicki. She really doesn't know I have this pic :P Or else, she'd make me delete it.
p.s. Went to Lok Yuk's Pasaria yesterday (Noon). Wasn't in the mood for pictures. Ni dua orang ja sempat mintapuji.
Jane and Sylvia (a.k.a Cil) of The Monkeys :P
Oops! It took longer than I thought to finish today's update. It's almost two. Promised The Monkeys to arrive at Stadium Likas at two. Oh well~ Toodles!

I don't even know where to begin! Technically, I cursed, the whole day. I rarely curse, I tell you. I only curse when things go bad enough, like, real bad! But today? It was the worst!

It's quite a long story so I'll just skip to the climax (No, it's not that I'm lazy to blog or anything, right now). When I was stupidly running for my life across the street because of my fear of getting hit by a motorcycle 100miles away (Literally), which looked pretty fast to me, I dropped my barely-two-month-old cellphone. I was stunned I couldn't move for a while. My friend who was trailing behind me was the one who quickly picked up the phone for me. I almost couldn't believe it when I saw how badly it was damaged. I could've cried if I was alone with no one else around, at that time =.= I feel like mourning for a month, now. Gosh, how I wish I was so freaking rich. Because if I was, I would've laughed and cheered and everything if my phone got damaged. I'd be like "HAHAHAHAH! I'm gonna get a brand new phone! Or maybe even a new laptop!."

Bha. Cukuplah. Saya mahu pergi merawat hati yang luka dulu. Sekian terima kasih.

p.s. watched this.

Watching this and going out with The Monkeys yesterday was the highlight of my week. 

Oh Tuck! ♥
