The Fish's Officially Employed !!!

# edited @ 29 Nov #
Yay !!! Am officially employed !!!
Starting work today as the KPMG Intern !!!
It just feels so great to be called an 'intern', it omos
makes KPMG sound like Seattle Grace all of a sudden !!!
Buahaha 。。。 dun mind me, I just couldn't get
enough of Greys these days !!!

I didn't expect to be employed in such a short notice at first,
esp. when I only started sending my resume around last friday !!!
Nope, in fact it went all too quick !!! I received the call confirming my
internship from Khim @ KPMG even before I got to send my resume to
the 2nd firm on the list !!! Yupe, KPMG is the 1st !!! It's omos like a dream
come true to work for an international company. Got to know about KPMG
few years ago when I was researching for some materials for my mngt
units. Forgot what it was for, but I remembered I was pretty
impressed with KPMG's role in coming up with it.
Plus, it's one of the big four !!! And that itself,
already sounds very glamorous !!!

And then, to add on to my excitement
about my dream, I got to know that dearest Yawen
got herself employed @ KPMG KL, too few months ago!!!
That really boosted me much to live up my dream !!!
I did ask her many things about the company & I
was thrilled that her response about 'em were
all so good !!! She totally enjoyed her time
there !!! It's omos like a signal to me,
to work hard & to get myself into
the company !!! Buahaha 。。。

On the very 1st day of my internship,
I wore this beautiful pair of heels to work.
I love them to bits, hubby too !!!
It was totally a love at first sight !!!
I never get to have a really nice pair of heels,
it's either too small to fit my giant feet,
or it was just too fugly big !!!

Ah well, the first day ain't too bad !!!
I was told a lot to expect from internship @ KPMG,
& am pretty excited about it !!! There'd be hell lotsa
travelling, learning, and having fun all along the way !!!
Am totally anticipating everything, and who ever
says accounting is boring??? Me myself, is
starting to change perception now.

But I got pretty exhausted on my very
first day too !!! Because KPMG is moving over the
weekend to Center Point - Phase 1. That means hell
lotsa packing and unpacking to be done !!! Sweat
a lot throughout the day, walked a lot up and
down the stairs too !!! Am so happy I lost
1 kg after a day of tedious work !!!

But too bad, I gained another 2 kg after dinner
with hubby @ Passion Corner after work !!! Bahhh 。。。

Thanks so much hubby for all of
your support throughout everything !!!
I love you, & will owes do !!!

p/s: guys, I might not be able to update so often now,
but I'll keep you entertain with updates on my little twitter
box yay !!! Do stay tuned, I've got many stories to tell !!!
Til' then, take care ya'll !!!

The Best Monthiversary Gift Ever !!!

Yupe, you heard the news ~ he's back !!!
Hubby made a surprise come-back on the 2oth, our 20th !!!
He totally took me by surprise when he walked up the staircase
to my frontdesk with a beautiful bouquet of red rose on his hand.
I screamed so loud I think my neighbours living few miles away
heard me clearly !!! Just then I realised, notty mama & papa
teamed up with hubby for the surprise !!! I am so overly
excited seeing hubby for the very 1st time after half
freaking year !!! Hahaha 。。。I love you, dear !!!

Too Young for Age Issue?

I was at the Imigration Office today, I had to do my passport. I am super excited I finally own a passport of my own & am more excited now 'cus frens, the fish here no longer need to worry about waiting at the customs and no more admiring at all the jumbo jap cuisine photos @ Escapade that I saw everywhere else but my blog !!! Okay anyway, that wasn't my point !!! Something happened while I was trying to get things done with my passport application.

Well, I was pretty lucky the queue this afternoon, it wasn't really long so am expecting to finish everything early and go hunt for some nice jeans. And after waiting for some time, it's my turn to get my application reviewed by one of the officers at the application counter. With all the excitement I've gathered through the many years waiting for this very moment, I walked up to the officer, broad smile on my face, and proudly passed him all my documents. Of all the preparation done, still there always ought to be something missing !!! And there comes, the highly unfavourable sentence 。。。

Officer : Girl, did you bring along the original copy of your offer letter?

Me : Oh no, everything but that. Can you just accept this photocopied one?

Officer : Not really, girl. We need approval from the head & we need the original.

Me : But then, it's all the way back home & down here again ... (argh)

Officer : Well without the original, the student rate won't apply.

Me : How much exactly, is the student rate?

Officer : RM 150.

Me :
And the normal rate?

Officer : RM 300

Me : Alright wait me !!!

It's a friggin' 50% off, okay !!! Talking about gals & discount !!!
I made a call back home to see if dad is coming down town & I was lucky he almost started on his car engine dy. He decided to fetch the original offer letter for me and send it over to the office. Thank god, he didn't scold me for the recklessness !!! I waited, and waited and waited under the heat of the scorching sun. I just wish I could get everything done and settled with soon, real soon.

Finally 30 minutes later, dad finally dropped by with the document & I quickly rushed back up to proceed with the rest of the procedures. The officer was nice enough to let me cut queue. He was keying in my data, when another least-anticipated scenario happened 。。。

Officer : Oh akai !!! Tak dapat, girl !!! Tak dapat !!!

Me :
Har what ?? Apa tak dapat ??

Officer :
Your age tak dapat dah !!! Dah 21 !!!

Me :
21 years old tak dapat apply passport??

Officer :
Bukan, 21 tak dapat use student rate, girl !!!

Me :
(pissed) What's the problem with me being 21? Am still a student right?

Officer : Yaya, masih student, tapi dah 21. Jadi, tak dapat.

Me : Huh ... where got this kind of condition one ??

Officer : Sayanglar girl !!! Jadi masih need to pay Rm 300 loh.

Me : U shud've told me earlier. Save me all the trouble fetching a piece of paper.

Officer : Hahaha ... Mana saya tau ?? Muka kau tak macam 21 pun !!!

Me : ... (thanks and no thanks)

Tell me honestly, should I be happy because someone told me I didn't look as old as 21 or bekchek because, in fact, am too old a student to get a student rate ???

osh you noe, the one true thing about government policies is that, there is never one 'reasonable' reason behind every laid-out terms. The only way to deal with all the frustrations is to accept them with an open heart !!! From now on, I'll have to start re-adjusting my perception that a 'student rate' does not apply with all 'students' - not when you are 21 and still a student.

Exactly where's the logic behind all these anyway ??

60 Minutes to Doomsday

Him: Hey, what are you doing there?

Her: Am labelling all my snacks and chocolates 。。。

: Har? What? Why???

Her: So that they wouldn't end up in some others' stomaches !!!

: Wad's d big deal? It'd get into d stomach & becum shit anyway 。。。

Her: Well, at least that's my stomach & my shit !!!

Him: 。。。(speechless at his [pls input description] gf)

And you know, this is exactly what happen when you live in a house where everyone eats like no man's business !!! Wanna have a piece of my life? ('.')

Doomsday beginning in another 1 more hour. Am not procastinating, am studying really really hard, and inhaling lots & lotsa sugar to keep me awake & concentrating !!! I freaked out to even think about 'Accounting (External Reporting) 260 Finals Paper - Sem 2, 2008' !!! Rumour has it that it's the hardest accounting subject in the course & extremely, highly unpredictable. In fact, the students hate it that much, they even started a petition against it !!!

Pray hard, lovelies !

Too Much Cakes, Am Overdosed

The past few days of my life have
been too much about sugar & cakes 。。。

I found my favourite cake @ Secret Recipe !!!
Thanks to Fang for the recommendation !!!

And few mins ago, I just finished eating the most
wonderful Carrot Cake in the whole wide world !!!
(okay, I was exaggerating but it was really that good !!! no jokes !!!)

Homemade by my aunt !!! She is really good in everything !!!
From sewing to baking, and super nice !!! She's always
my saviour when it comes to birthday planning
and she's my personal baking tutor !!!

Bought home a piece of 'Fruit Gateau'
from The Chatterbox, Mega Hotel that day !!!
It was really nice, too !!! Very refreshing but too bad,
I din get to snap, I'll make sure I do next time around yay !!!
Am sure all these sudden sugar addictions were for some really
good reason !!! They work so well soothing my pressure !!!
Gonna need 'em tru finals til mid of November now !!!
Good luck and all the best, my frens !!!

Til then,
take care ya'll.

Not Resigning; Just On Leave

And the caption says it all !!!

I miss blogging, I miss having a life here, seriously !!!
But currently, am trying to keep both eyes on revision,
until my last lab test on Friday, then am off to some really
tantalizing dinner with Ning @ Annie's, and perhaps
another one @ Bavaria next week !!! Right after
which am gonna start burying myself under
piles of revision papers, and get myself
all prepared for finals again !!!

If you're lucky enough, I might steal some time
off next week around & fill you up with some finger-licking
good foods randomly picked from the fish's food folder !!!
(which apparently hasn't been really active for a very long time now !!!)

And nope, I hadn't been procrastinating all week
round now, and am damn proud of myself. Am doing good
with the 'study & reward' plan am up to, tho it looks very much
like am spoon-feeding myself to study !!! So now, am getting equal
dosage of the Gossip Girl, Prison Break, House, Greys, Ugly Betty,
and bla bla bla every week in the intervals of my revision !!!
How nice !!! I spent 15 'boring' minutes revising, and 45
'exciting' minutes injecting myself with another
episodes of bla bla bla every day !!!
Life can be good, ain't it true?

p/s: Just finished watching the latest episode of Prison Break,
Heroes and Gossip Girl. Maybe Heroes ain't that bad after all, I think I
can accept the extend of supernatural power they have (I used to think that
they are over-rated & it lacks the 'forbidden love' sorta element am looking for)
I think Hiro Nakamura is extremely cute !!! He totally made my day !!!
Am loving this 'rewarding myself' system !!! It really works !!!

Of Roswell & Twilight

I guess I do ve a very good reason from missing in action, dun I?
Thanks to Qing and Aeron for bringing back this part of my childhood
memories !!! I cudn't recall the last time I watched 'Roswell' on Star Movie
but I surely do remember how excited I was everytime I did !!! Well,
that pretty much explained why I used only 3 days to finish up
the complete 3 seasons !!! OMG !!! And I actually slept at
6.30 a.m. watching the 1st season !!!

It's really nice, tho it's little old now, ppl say I should be
watching 'Gossip Girl' instead of 'Roswell' !!! But, you really have
to understand the chemical of the story, you just get, I duno ...
somewhat addicted ?? I really hope there's another season
tho I have no idea what's left to show then ... hehehe ...

And you noe wad's the best part about everything?
It's that it doubles my appetite for 'Twilight',
which is coming up end of this year !!!

Maybe it was Sarah McLachlan & her ever famous song ~ Fear
or me being hooked on this alien-human romantic love story, I duno...
I just hope that tomorrow's December already !!!

Credits to Qing, for introducing me to this wonderful movie !!!
Am dearly anticpating it right now !!! You can read all about 'Twilight'
from this fangirl ~ Qing, who is somewhat obssessed about it, and
even sent me a summary of the book through email, which I
haven't even read it until now !!! Am so very sure she
can tell you the whole story backwards !!!

Am officially announcing that ~
Am awaiting 'Twilight' !!!

p/s: Am wearing this really nice, green dress I borrowed from Qing to
attend my cousin's wedding last friday !!! Thanks a lot, Qing !!! If it wasn't for her,
I'd have gone through really rough time finding myself something to replace the
little black dress I supposedly wanted to wear !!! Thanks to Mum for the last minute
grumbles on my choice of colour to a wedding !!! Typcical Chinese, huh?
Pfft ... notice the colour of muh hair? Yewp, I finally dyed it !!! Yay !!!
I'll blog about it someday, after I got all the stuffs from Qing !!!

Happy 39th Monthiversary !!!

(taken by Qing @ Secret Recipe)
p/s: Thanks to Jiun for the awesome but funny idea of taking
this couple pic for the both of us in celebration of our monthiversary !!!
Finally, we managed to defeat the distance barrier, and there you go
~ the very 1st couple shot of the Pig & Fish together !!!

It's crazy how I missed you more every 20th on
the calendar, but through it all I know, at least there's
something in my life that I'll keep waiting & waiting for ...
I love you, darling & Happy 39th Monthiversary !!!

Good Luck, Hubby !!!

final paper before going off for sem break today !!!
Good luck, dear & you'll do fine, don't worry !!!

There's lots & lotsa dramas and series awaiting me !!!
Moonlight Resonance & Greys' topping my lists !!! And am so
very happy that Grey's Season 5 is coming out next week !!! Well,
the same goes to Ugly Betty's Season 3 !!! And I still couldn't
believe that the line at my place is running at 1kb/s !!!
How can download movies like dis ?? It would take
yrs to finish 1 season lar !!! By that time, Greys
would become antique dy !!! Bah !!! Feel like
choking telekom for this !!!

p/s: Am updating at my cousin's place now, cuz right at this
moment, the line at my place is NO longer running at all !!! I cudn't sign
in Skype or MSN and I cudn't online now !!! Am feeling very very (x infinity)
pathetic, and I wished to choke telekom or streamyx or whoever lar

The Black Apple

Doesn't sound familiar? Hahaha 。。。
Cause it's NEW, new in town !!!
Introducing 'The Black Apple ~ ' !!!

A very "extra-miri-ordinary" cafe, it almost
looks a little mislocated when situating somewhere
near the busy Krokop Market, just next to the
ever famous ' Chicken Rice' !!!

I had to use the word 'extra-miri-ordinary',
cause I really couldn't find anything close to it
anymore !!! You'll get how I feel the minute you saw
that amazing place !!! And I thought I can only
recall the days at Padungan Street,
ever since !!!

Well from the cafe's outlook & interior design,
it's really impressive & outstanding. But I felt that the
spaces around the interior is less cosy, well unless if you're thr
for an afternoon tea or morning breaks or light supper, then that's
another story !!! Cause, when I was there yesterday afternoon
during lunch, I can hardly move around, the place was too
crowded !!! I guessed now at this period of time, the
population of Miri will either be in Secret Recipe
or here at 'The Black Apple' !!! The people are
seriously flooding these new places !!!

Gotta love this old vintage clock
at the corner of the wall !!!

Admiring the rest of the details
We weren't there for the foods, we're just too excited
to explore this new beautiful cafe in town !!! We
ordered for drinks only since we were still full
after eating out at before that.

Ning's Ribena Sprite
I ordered for 3 layers tea, it doesn't taste as
good as 鸿 's, am not sure about the others.

And yea, must owes remember yo take photo one,
whenever visitting a new shop !!! Can forget pay,
but cannot forget take photos ler !!!

Lik & Ning
I love this picture of 'em !!!

I really enjoy taking pictures for the both of them !!!
Cause no matter how they pose, they still
look so sweet together !!!

cause I don't wanna be the history of your beloved truth .

F.O.O.D.S - Put Me Through Exam Fever

Ahh。。。(gasping for air)
The mid-semester exams are really killing us.
I've been waking up to logics, crunching numbers,
sleeping with books, dreaming with maths for the
past few days of my life !!! I now declare that
I hate exams, I love assignments more !!!

I'll be having another accounting mid-sem
exam tomorrow morning as early as 8 & I've had
enough reading about databases and drawing flowcharts,
I am now going to blog about everything that I can't
live without during this very period of
my life - the exam period !!!

I labelled this the 'Armani Must-drink' !!!
Including their Mango Ice-blended, too !!!

my favourite cornflakes
Now you can't find this easily le, am not sure why.
It disappeared after I entered secondary school right
until few days ago, I found them at GK Supermarket, with a
somewhat expensive price !!! Thanks to dearest Ning, she
bought this back from her previous brunei trip !!! And I
swear I could finish that up in just 1 day !!!

my other favourite cornflakes - coco crunch
I wouldn't miss picnicking without it, too !!!

This is irresistible, I warn you !!!
I love love love the crusty danish layers in between !!!
The blueberry pie's nice as well. But I preferred this.

I only visit Blueberry Bakery for these !!!
They taste super nice when served cold !!!
And yea, that's hubby's hand. This was
taken long before he went Perth.

I'll get super happy everytime I manage to find
this in Ma Baker, cause it sells out very quickly
all the time !!! Eat it cold, the crab meat
and hotdog still tastes super juicy !!!

I heart the country loaf, soft & tasty !!!
Together with my favourite peanut butter
& grape spread ~ highly addictive !!!

I would never leave Pujut 7 without
these yummy-li-cious foods !!!

When I cudn't get out, I get them delivered instead !!!
People, don't call up for order, try online-ordering instead,
get a free regular pizza with a purchase of one !!!
Super worth-it !!! Check it out here.

Ah well, this is random 。。。
Mum bought this back as my 'lunch' this afternoon.
I guess she supposed I would eat the pearls like
I eat rice, I dun get what's on her mind !!!

If I ever leave Malaysia, I would drag along
2 huge luggage bags full of 'Maggi-s' !!!

Ahh, and nothing beats a welcoming
green tea ice-cream studying on a
hot hot afternoon !!!

Oh Yay !!! Secret Recipe just opened few days ago !!!
Went to try out with Mil & Al the other day !!!
(by skipping our finance analysis lecture buahaha。。。)

One of my close friend, Fang just got herself
employed at S.R. right now, right at this time, I
just received her sms !!! Am very happy for her !!!
Hope everything goes well for you on your 1st
day, darl !!! It'd be a long night, tho 。。。

News has it that Starbucks' coming soon !!!
Am sure lotsa Curtinians are going gigi-gaga about it !!!
Well, at least am sure one does ~ Melissa !!! I knew her through
my management class last year, and I din get to know her
better, but the very 1st time we talked, I remembered
her 1st word was 'I love Starbucks, like A LOT !!!"
She was kinda sad that Miri din have it that
time, it makes her miss KK more !!!

Ah then, for all the sugars & carbohidrat
I stuffed 'effortlessly' into my tummy, I need to
at least 'neutralized' everything with something, right?
Don't mind me, drinking tea makes me feel less guilty !!!

And finally 。。。
This is priceless
I'll never get through exams without you by my side !!!
He's not the 'foods' that put me thru exam fever btw,
he's an exception !!! Hahaha 。。。thanks dear !!!
Wish me luck tomorrow, dear all !!!

p/s: Prison Break is so not going to be the 'thing' that put me thru!!!
It's so damn irresistible, and too heart-throbing it made me forget
everything I've been trying to stuff into my brain for the past
few days !!! Argh。。。I can't wait for another episodes
for another 1 week !!! It would feel like
years, decades, centuries 。。。
