Sunday. 6 days. Adapting. Never thought it would be easy , and grateful for the countless number of friends that made this time easier.

Hopefully today after going cheng beng and all can go bowling tonight. Itching to bowl...havnt done so for a year already.

Thinking bout certain things.. such as the way I prefer to do things in my own pace and timing. Sometimes I feel that being rushed really gets on my nerves... I rather do things when I'm comfortable. But guess it doesn't always work this way.

Realised that even though we all love our country, many aspire to travel and settle down abroad in the coming years. Its nothing wrong, just... well, not strange, giving every happening / circumstance around us. Its just natural... to find a place of survival, a place to prosper, a place where one can spread their wings and fly...

Wonder how people can be sure they've made the right decision(or not). and the road not taken, one will never know how it could have turned out...

I know my blog lacks photos. Well, in times of pensiveness and moodiness, the photos are just...not so appropriate. and since this isn't my doesnt even have bluetooth, how to transfer my photos on? my computer has been sent for repair, and the way it looks ,the hard disk will be replaced. all the data, gone.... (one of the worst nightmares one can have, honestly).

this week... class everyday; wellness module(facilitating) wednesday and friday, mon csu, tues pbl (and fri oso la) plus mms currently timing still in a fix...hehe may start going gym. treadmill, nothing big. excercise? (uh, the horror)...

Shall sign off for now. Comp's not mine, and people are nagging pestering. My mood is boiling again. Some people just don't know when to ask questions. And some don't know they should NOT ask some questions. If only certain people aren't so annoying.

Sitting in front of the laptop (not mine), I' feeling really lonely at the moment. Listening to songs, feeling like crying. Its like, something I hold back, at least as much as I can.

I think there needs to be mutual understanding and tolerance toward people in our matter how close we are , or how far. Humans will never be perfect... we only strive to be. Everyone has different priorities, there is a need to respect another's priorities as well. What we see may be different from another's point of view.

I'm kinda glad I'm not in semester one at the moment. Well, first of all, the biggest challenge , EOS 2 hurdle has passed. Successfully? Well, I passed. All by His grace honestly. Anyway, was at the fitness / wellness module training. and I realised it was a serious thing. 1stly, its the IMU president's brainchild. The main goal is health promotion - by prevention. Therefore a series of "fitness tests" are to be done from semester 1...right to semester 5 (for pms students) and to semester 9 (for local seremban student). and here's the thing - if one doesn't pass the fitness "test", the person CANNOT sit for EOS 5. freaky ok! its like pjk (physical activities/sports) from high school all over again... ... ...

Haha, Sexiest truly rocks la. Not only do I agree, many other people (my batchmates) agree too. read Zia who recorded her thanks to the group sexiest. She's amazing! hehe. Sexiest is amazing too! In ISOW (In support of women), the majority of the committee belongs to the sexiest group. Truly "owning"! haha

I miss alot of things. I do :'(

Racing agaisnt time to when my dad comes to pick me up. As fyi, my comp is suffering idiopathic whatever disorder. I hope it will recover soon. It needs a name.

Japanese Club( I am a member ok! ) had its welcoming party. pizza thin crust hawwaai...getting sick of pizza's. lol. kickapoo. and they watched pokemon second generation. so ugly la. 1st generation one nicer. lols... and that ended up as the mealtime topic at the cafeteria. Gengar, jigglypuff.... ... ... -_________- haha

Forgot to book room for csu practice this morning , so ended up having no room to practice csu. sorry sooky and chong sen! this week has been a long week. but I'm grateful. sorry tej! next week we practice again k :) thanks for so willingly being my sp. so stingy! only RM4 angpow. lols.

It was this time that CS got on my nerves. I just couldn't stand it...and before I knew it, my tears just flowed. Joanne, I thought you were ok. Get a grip of yourself. But I know I'll be fine. In fact, more than fine. Thanks to all who kept me company these few days. You guys made the world of difference to me. And to all of you who think so, no No NO I'm not going to get white hair. Its not in my genes. I'm young forever...sexiest! haha :) :) :D

Hustings was fine. Zia was good. Her replies were at best...professional. *advertistment* VOTE FOR ZIA!!! hahaha zia's the best bet la. she's sincere and she can get the job done. this is one of the highest compliments I can pay her.

Before that , rushed off. Saw many familiar faces. Just to get in the mood. And come in full surrender. To remember who I am in Him, to feel Him speaking to me. Indeed, I am the boat with holes...but I never will sink coz He's there. I'll not just float, but move. I'm not at the oars, He is. And the tree from the last time? It has added some rings to its rims. Simbolizing years of wisdom, sweat, tears, struggles. The spoken, and unspoken.

I realised that I've got a lot to learn from the people around me. The diligence, responsiblity. The discipline. And much much more. The way they joke and fool around. Clowns, I tell you! Clowns! Lols.

Its a fresh new beginning, a new chapter has began. Definitely will be different, hopefully much more exciting and inspiring than before. And here's to getting back my computer asap! *clinks glass*
I can't believe my less-than-a-year old computer hard disks have crashed! and my data gone...with no backup!!! lols T.T

And there goes all my photos which I wanted to post up. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I dunno what to say la...this week has been a zombie week, with countless shocks and surprises. My goodness.

I'm actually feeling quite...stone at the moment. Last night I happened to check the weighing scale. if i remember correctly, I have lost bout 3 kg's...or at least 1. hmm. not that it shows la :/

Yesterday evening checked out the gym. Pretty small place, but quite cool. Going by the current state, the pigs might be gearing up to fly... (coz joanne never does sports). i may. and repeat, MAY go gym. treadmill. not really crazy bout weights and all. hahaha. sweat. Rakib! keep me updated dude!

Thanks Vyna for the apple and banana pies. Ate it after class. Haha, first time i saw burnt pies from MacD's. Apple pies rock! but if I were there I'll change it , but I ate it anyway. Thanks Vyna! I owe u rm3.15 :P Thanks for reading tru my super-duper emo posts and caring for me. For everything dearie. Hugs :)

This week has been tie week. I nicked weihoong's tie on tues and wore it on wed. Everytime someone asked me bout it, I told them its a junior's tie. Returned it to him to wed evening. Yesterday I wore (my dad's) red tie. Guess what? Not only did they compliment it,they asked me which junior did I nick my tie from this time. LOL! hahaha. And I tied the tie myelf (and retied it since I was so particular...) Ruby lets go tie buying! :D

Actually quite touched that you would just suffocate yourself with wasabi just to make me smile. lols you din have to do that. I mean, if you couldn't take it, you could have just refused...But a big thank you. Seriously. tho that place is deja vu, but being with you guys make a difference. Its fun in a way...takes my mind off things.

Haemato...blood...i dun like :( honeslty, i doubt many semester 3's are actually in the "mood" to study, i mean, we just finished summatives 2 fridays ago. no break whatsover, we started on monday the next week. I find it hard to just sit in lecture... A friend commented that he actually slept in lectures twice this week. :/ ahhh...the joys and pains of medical school. Same untouched notes for so so long. sighs.

Realised that I can't be left alone for long. At least not for now. was "studying"...and the memories just flooded my brain. Couldn't hold it in....And it was in the library. opposite me, some pple I know (but thank God not so close to) saw. embarrasingnya.

PBL in an hour. Havn't touched yet. Lets hope he makes it short. Pretty please with a cherry on the top. :O

I'm nearly fine. Just a few more days, I guess. Its actually been better than I thought, the way I took it. Anyway, sexiest really really went out of their way for me. and for that, I'm truly grateful. Really. You guys rawk to the max wei. :) :D I still want to go bowling...arrange one where sooky and I can go! our lectures till 3.45 everyday!

I think. ( I think) the emo posts should be nearly done. Time to face today with a different attitude, a different spirit. I'm waiting for the rainbow after the rain, the silver lining under the dark clouds.

I'm learning that I do matter to people around me, learning that I can soar above the circumstances (like there are any in my "situation" :/ ) . learning to be the sexiest at all times! haha. Sexy not just in terms of physical, but mental and emotional! (I think I'm crapping)


Wednesday, March 25, 2009


Since I'm at it, I might as well continue. After all, I always wanted to do this.

First quarter of the year is nearly drawing to an end. This year has been a year full of more ways than one. Definitely not a year that I expected it to be, but I guess its for me to make the most out of each experience to grow and move on; and to encourage others.

The first month of the year brought many new faces and challenges. In the 2nd week of returning to university, I got robbed 2 minutes from my home by 3 indian boys who threatened assult. This left me shaken for quite some time. It definitely has affected me till now. The worst part is happening to "meet" at a food stall, and not just me recognizing him who robbed me, but him recognizing me.

February went by in a breeze. I actually barely remember anything from February.

And March strode by. Final preparations and various meetings for the orientation 2009 for the medicine / dentistry batches. All too soon there were many new faces. And to cut the looong story short, during orientation I got run down by a car. Miraculously, God granted me no injuries, at least no major ones. Our group name is seXIest. And till this very day the name remains, the people stick close. I find myself part of the family...and proud of it.

Recently. A few days ago. Had to make up a choice that I had put off for way to long. Words of wisdom from people I never expected made me think. I realised that somethings can't be pushed, some things were just...meant/ not meant to be. A difficult decision but I can't say I regret. Simply because thinking things through, I realise that if that were to continue, I would lose myself entirely and just...lose purpose. I'm utterly grateful you understand and care, and I'm honoured to call you my brother.

And its during these not so easy times that so many things I'm grateful for. The friends I have around me, who go all the way out for me. Treat me with love, patience and care. Crack me up! lols. I realise that these people are the jewels , the rare gems in my closet. And I would not trade them for anything in this whole wide world. Not money definitely.

I wanna be someone who lives out her life. Who cares for others, puts others first. Whom goes the extra mile for another. I wanna be someone whom smiles, someone whom encourages, someone whom is always there for others in all times.I wana be a true friend. I wanna be the girl that is carefree, does not over analyse all the surface talk. To be a person whom always sees the bright lining of the a dark situation, whom always smile and count her blessings. More than anything , someone whom loves. Loves others. Loves what she's doing. Do all she does - with passion. To have the faith and confidence in herself. In what she does. In whom she is.

2009 thus far had been crazy. However, I do look forward to the other 3 upcoming quarters of the year. Hopefully, with a new heart and a new mind, I can accept the larger portion of 2009 with no regrets, and can happily say at year end that it was all the best ever.

And now, April beckons...
"Sometimes solutions aren't so simple.
Sometimes goodbye's the only way."

I know I have a lot to be grateful for.

To begin with, I gained a brother. I didn't lose anything.

My friends had been more than supportive.
Its nearly impossible to sit in pbl9 with sooky, Chelsea and tej and not burst into constant laughter. Tej is so stingy lol! Ang pow apparently he would only give me RM2.50. lols! Although the hard part was eating the nasi goreng cina ordered by WaiHoong. My granparents, Sooky and Tej, + Aunty Chelsea made me eat. lols. it was one of the hardest meals. It really had no taste. Usually, I'll want the uncle to give me more rice. Today, I just feel that the rice was too much.

So half a packet of nasi goreng cina was consumed. The rest...I just could not touch it. It was by pure force that everything went down. Although I admit the whole night I was experiencing oesophageal reflux. and waking up feeling nauseated and feeling like vommitting.

Went to carrefour. wanted to bowl. there was a tournament and all the lanes were booked, so din. bought socks (coz din bring). went to pyramid instead. again the lanes were booked -_________________- . i so wanted to bowl, honestly. Wanted to take my mind off things. And I bought the freakin pair of socks that cost RM4.90!!! coz i coudn't bear to wear the kid like cute socks that were more than 2 times cheaper.

Went to zenmai. Chicken Katsudon. 3/4 finished. Good I guess. hahaha. had wasabi eating challenge. Tej, Derrick and Eldwin was super...hilarious to watch. Rakib and Damien no less. Har har har. Their expressions were just...priceless. I tried too. slight bit of tearing...but otherwise ok. my tongue got desensitized very fast, plus I managed to swollow in time. Sorry guys, mine wasnt fun to watch, I know. Lols. Then the lame games.... bang bang, aunty mary, follow me etc. So silly. But fun. also tiring. my mind just wasnt the usual me. half the time I just felt too tired, too lazy to even think of the game's mechanics.

Endah Parade and Sunway Pyramid held many many memories for me. it was like ... deja vu going there again. I think it did not take a genius to realise i was pensive more than half the time. was thinking. something would draw me back to the shadows of the past.

Anyway, Tej, Eld, Ruby and Sooky, a big shoutout to you guys. for trying to prank scare me (don't u ever do that agan, Tej! ) , just taking care of me as a lil sister, staying up with me till 4.30 am (lol you weren't the only one who missed class today, Ruby) , and just...being there time and again. Watching not just my emotions, but physical health. (you rock la sooky). You guys really are the reason I'm still sane. I don't think time has ever passed this slowly(yet so fast) before. And I appreciate each moment you guys ( and all) spend with me. Just a hug, trying to make me happy. Just listening to me rant/ pepper u with nonsense smses. Lagging behind to make sure I don't get lost. and much more. The emotional support.

I know I'm still "emo". Will take a while, but I'll be fine. The thing is, I'm not living to please a particular someone... I will be the Joanne I am. the person I am inside. Not a shadow. Not a mask. Not a reflection. But a true me.
Something I wanted to post up last night...

Somehow, again. I ended up at the computer. Coret-ing the words that are not spoken from the heart. I do. Writing. Backspacing. Writing. Backspacing.

Backspace again. Somehow the words just wouldn't form properly.

2 slices of bread.Blueberry bun. barely touched dinner. 4.30 am. That kinda summarized the day, I guess.

My eyes are so small today, I wonder I can even see with them. Not that my eyes were big in the first place.

This is like, the dunno what-th post. But its ok. I notice its not just me emo-ing. Many others too are. Be happy k , u guys. u know who u are. The rainbow comes after the rain. Search for the silver lining somewhere.

My notes. Have been there for ages. Just don't seem to move past the page. Maybe coz its biochm , not my fav. But I guess I need to work on it.

11.01am. I don't know what is in today.

Tuesday, March 24, 2009


Shadow of the day (Linkin Park) is the song right now. Not entirely. But closest.

I dunno if I'll ever get to bed tonight.

The most gay and "loving" couple I've seen. Unlikely combination (lol the photo is my wallpaper. like make even girls go "awwww" one :/ )

So many thoughts are on my mind. Messy and disorganized.

Blogging is space to vent anything and everything I think.

I feel zombie like. Woke up felt nauseated. wanna vomit. end up just... ...

But I know it'll pass. Its a new day tomorrow.

I found it hard to spend time alone. Really hard.

Every little thing reminded me of you. How u used to carry my books. Just sitting with you.

Lunch. Rather, no lunch. I couldn't eat. Talking to my junior/ friend. It just came out, uncontrolled. Scared him, I think.

Studies. Images of memories would come prancing by. Times together.

Studies. Highlighting. I couldn't bear to even highlight the word attached. (its so stupid tho).

Drawing grass. I couldn't continue. I used to draw the sun, flowers, rivers, mountains and fish with you.

As a result, I had to hide in my sweater as I had no tissue. In the middle of auditorium.

2nd lecture. It was the same. In the end, I just had to sleep. to prevent further mess.

But don't mind me. Its just my way of coping. I hope you are doing much much better than me.

And I'm truly fortunate, blessed, to have amazing friends like my group sexiest. especially to those who could read panic cries in my messages. drive all the way to my house to pick me up, keep me from being alone. reminding me you guys love me for who I am. Eldwin. daddy. talk to me bout anything just to distract me. to keep me company. Tej. grandad (lol). Seeing me through. Just caring. hearing my story. encouraging me. The gentle hugs. reminding me I've got u guys. Dhina. being the bro that you were since 5 or more yrs ago. listening to my crap and cries. giving me the best advice a bro could give. supporting me. loving me. caring for me. Chee Kin. Just happening to be there. just listening. being there. walking me accross the road. Rakib. the care. the concern. all of you. Dai and all the rest. Thank you coz it really meant so so much to me. Honestly.

And those who finish my near untouched dinner. Rakib. Bryan. coz got no appetite the whole day. my stomach is a lil empty now, honestly. But got no mood to eat. food is even if it were my fav, even if it was a feast with my fav foods. thanks sook for the blueberry bun today. saved me from gastric. ate for the sake of eating. the bun din taste as nice as i remembered it to be. for keeping me company. trying to make me laugh. distracting me. putting silly photos of the rest so that I can at least shake my head and laugh. haha. sook. amazing sooky. tho later not really eating my dinner din help. gosh, im messing with my health la.

I think my eyes are nearly normal. Except that my dark eye bags really give me away. and make up woudn't help :/ ( not that I make up )

And tomorrow will be another day. One day at a time. I'm not gonna rush. Just take some time out. Recharge? rest. find myself. I hope.

and you'll always be amazing. always. remember that ok. anyone would be tremendously blessed to have you. I'm sorry it had to be me. Honestly sorry it had to end up like this. But like you said. We lost nothing. I guess that's a comfort.






Its raining outside. Pouring. They say there is a rainbow aft3r the rain. Will there be one today?

Many things have happened this year. Change, as we call it. And change is ongoing.
I have something I have to do. I realize it must be done, for the better...
And its not going to be easy, But I guess it has dragged on too long already. Its...time to move on?

Reviewing the past, it was an amazing time. We braved oceans and seas, time and season. But somehow it changed... the wind and the tide changed course, and some leaves fell to the ground. All along ,a heart was changing... but was it for the better?

No one is to be blamed. In fact, I'm glad we both tried. In the end, it wasn't you, but me who gave up. I realized I kinda "lost" myself on the way, I wasn't who I was. I became very tired as well...

But for the past , the moments shared, it is a memory. a sweet one, but the end has approached.
I thought this through, and all I can say is ,this is for the better... I don't want to be unfair to either one of us. Sure, I wish it had a different ending, but time has told otherwise.

You're a amazing person. Writing this with unshod jewels in my eyes, I can proudly say I was once yours...but we'll now go our separate ways. I wish you nothing but the best. And I hope we'll stay good friends.

Adieu, my friend. Let time take its course... And look towards the future. Till then...

Yes. After Friday, we went for sushi class. We - Sooky, my bro (he loves jap stuff) and myself. Not many pictures. Action mar! :D

Sook looking up, me looking down.

I'm trying to kill sook. with a crabstick.

Some stuff my bro and I made which we brought home.
california roll I think. I brought it home to cut, and realised that was a mistake. the rice fell apart coz it became dry already.

erm...rolled sushi?

Hand rolls, rice balls, tuna tops, egg and crabstick sushi.

The two amazing chefs on my left and right. my bro and batchmate! not me(i mean, I'm a lousy chef la). why? coz alot I did fell apart...and I could easily had won the most messy award of there were 1. sooky attributes it to impatience. not good, either way :(

on the whole it was a good experience, honestly. fun, enjoyable. the ingredients ran out incredibly fast, and the committee were kept running bout with tasks like refilling empty bowls and going out to buy plain white rice (since the sushi rice, which is incredibly expensive! had ran out). haha! but kudos to the jap club (which I am now a member. lols man.

Monday, March 9, 2009


I think I must have been crazy on friday. Brain was a lil fried after summatives, afterall.
Was walking in Berjaya with Sooky, ChongSen and HoChing. This man (caught a fleeting picture of him) was promoting the "fish spa". RM5 for 15 minutes.

So well, I was interested. Haha. And I tried, but with no success, to persuade any of the others to join me :( I was so darn terrified!!! but I had already washed my legs. Just too too too afraid to put my legs in the water. the fish looked humongous! :O

I think it was quite a while before I finally put my feet in to "feed" the fish.

Tortured smile.


The fish freakin' big! :O

HoChing and Sooky.
(and the man in cap and white shirt who promoted it walking behind)

ChongSen and myself :)

Afterword: well, now I'm not afraid already la. but if you asked me if its something to enjoy, I would say nothing enjoyable about it...just an experience. No, I wouldn't pay to feed the fish again. Your dead skin will grow again anyhow, no?

Something my dad received in the email. Had me laughing so hard man. Look at the "standard" of English...and the cheekiness ><


** Letter from India **

My dear Jagjit,

I am in a well here and hoping you are also in a well there. I'm writing this letter slowly, because I know you cannot read fast.

We are not living where we did when you left home. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen 20 miles from home, so we moved 20 miles. I am not able to send the address, as the last Sardar who stayed here took the house numbers with them for their new house so they would not have to change their address. Hopefully by next week we will be able to take our earlier address plate here,and that our address will remain same too.

This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine, situated right above the toilet. But I'm not sure it works too well. Last week I put in 3 shirts, pulled the chain, and haven't seen them since.

The weather here isn't too bad. It rained only twice last week. The first time it rained for 3 days and second time for 4 days.

The coat you wanted me to send you, your Aunt said it would be a little too heavy to send in the mail with all the metal buttons, so we cut them off and put them in the pocket.

Your father has another job. He has 500 men under him. He is cutting the grass at the cemetery.

By the way, I took Bahu to our club's poolside. The manager is Badmash. He told her that two piece swimming suit is not allowed in his club. We were confused as to which piece we should remove?

Your sister had a baby this morning. I haven't found out whether it is a girl or a boy, so I don't know whether you are an Aunt or Uncle.

Your uncle, Jetinder fell in the nearby well. Some men tried to pull him out, but he fought them off bravely and drowned. We cremated him and he burned for three days.

Your best friend, alwinder, is no more. He died trying to fulfill his
father's last wishes. His father had wished to be buried in the sea after
he died. And your friend died while in the process of digging a grave for
his father.

There isn't much more news this time. Nothing much has happened.


P.S : Jagjit, I was going to send you some money but by the time I realized, I had already sealed off this letter.

Have a chuckle.
(Apparently) This is a true story from the Japanese Embassy in US !!!

A few years ago, Prime Minister Mori was given some Basic English conversation training before he visits Washington and meets president Bill Clinton...

The instructor told Mori "Prime Minister, when you shake hand with President Clinton, please say 'How r u'."
Then Mr. Clinton should say, 'I am fine, and you?' Now, you should say 'me too'. Afterwards we, translators, will do the work for you.'

It looks quite simple, but the truth is....

When Mori met Clinton , he mistakenly said 'Who r u?' (Instead of 'How r u?'.)

Mr.Clinton was a bit shocked but still managed to react with humor:
'Well, I'm Hillary's husband, ha-ha...'

Then Mori replied 'Me too, ha-ha... .'.

Then there was a long silence in the meeting room!!!!!!
Actually, it doesn't matter. Does it?

Sometimes, maybe I'm just a lil overenthusiastic. Working with a bunch of people is so not easy. You want the best for them , they too. Probably I've the worst PR skills in this world, so much so that there's conflict with everyone I rub shoulders with.

I'm pissed. I really really am.

It seems there isn't a purpose I'm where I am. None.

Tuesday, March 3, 2009

Got from a friend's note of facebook.

Doctors were told to contribute to the constructionof a new wing at the hospital.
What did they do?

The allergists voted to scratch it.

The dermatologists preferred no rash moves.

The gastroenterologists had a gut feeling about it.

The neurologists thought the administration had a lot of nerve.

The obstetricians stated they were laboring under a misconception.

The ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted.

The orthopedists issued a joint resolution.

The pathologists yelled, "over my dead body!"

The pediatricians said, "grow up."

The psychiatrists thought it was madness.

The surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing.

The radiologists could see right through it.
