Happy Chinese New Year 2012

Happy Dragon Year!! =D  I think this is the 1st year i'm spending CNY without my family. It can be quite depressing, makes me miss home soooo much. Didn't do much on CNY, just made some sushi and hangout with chinese friends. And dinner with classmates on the 1st day of CNY. that's it! not a single ang pow was received this CNY T______T

And on the 3rd day of CNY there's a celebration in the UKC's Gulbenkian Cafe. CHEAT ONE. cause the "free buffet" was just some fried spring rolls and frozen fried food. NOT nice. and it wasn't enough for even half the crowd. I didn't manage to get any but i managed to "steal" some from friends who managed to get it. Ended up coming back home for dinner. There was a lion dance which i was really looking forward to but yea, there was lion, without the dance and the drums =________= CHEAT ONE x 2

The only consolation was this. Fortune cookie. It's my 1st time eating fortune cookies. It was just normal, i'm not sure whether this is the tradition - cookie with a message inside. but my Chinese friends told me they don't have these in China. and i don't remember seeing this in Malaysia either. O.O

Oh hai! this is me in the super packed cafe. I think there're more angmohs that Chinese
Ok, END OF CNY. NOT interesting AT ALL. =.=

below are just some random food i made 

Learnt this from Italianese back home. I used tiger bread. The dip was just olive oil, vinegar and oregano. Turned out that the oregano was not strong enough. No oregano taste =(

Baked the 1st cake of my life all by myself yesterday =)
It was good. *proud* 
oh. it was a banana cake. 

Some new fish and chip shop, and the fish was so huge i can barely finish >.<
so i ended up not eating the chips. it wasn't nice =X

My makeup on CNY eve. Put on make up because I will if i'm back home. so i thought i should do it here as well.

Ending this post with a picture of me and the big ben. taken the last trip i went to London.

Being Lazy

So over the winter holiday, I've been to quite a few places. But I haven't sort ANY pictures yet. I guess when you have more time (holiday) you tend to get more lazy than normal days. I've been sleeping half a day off and waking up when the sky is almost dark. Not seeing much of sun =.=

And if you realized, I've been posting blurry pictures. hehehe. Because it's so much easier to upload pictures from the ipad rather than transferring tons of pictures and then sort them out then only upload. But the quality of pictures sucks, which can be a good thing cause you can't see my flaws! HAHAHA

Yesterday I finally decided to be more discipline, you know, when the year is still new people will be all semangat for a while. lol.

SO I went jogging at 7a.m! Can't even recall the last time I woke up this early. Went jogging. Best part is I'm so refreshed now and the weather is not that cold for a jog! =) Ok, so I've decided to sleep earlier from now on, earlier meaning before 12 and wake up at 7 for a jog or if I don't I'll still wake up earlier. And I did a good job, sleeping at 11+ last night. Cannot imagine myself sleeping so early. haha

taken during my recent trip to london (if you haven't notice the London Eye behind lol). I know I gained weight. Maybe you cant see from this picture. Just don't tell me I look fine. Bitch please.jpg.

Drama Queen Strikes again!!

First time in my life getting severe bed bug bites so I have to blog this!!! might not seem so severe for you but for me, being the *drama queen*, IT IS.

okay, you might say that I'm being very dirty but I got bed bug bites since the 1st week I came to Woolf College, my uni accommodation. AND never in my life I got any stings/bites from bed bugs before so I just thought that it might be some ultra crazy mozzies which bites can itch for DAYS until I googled "bed bug bites" wtf.

So for the past few months, I've been getting red marks one in a while, more like once a fortnight but it never really bothered me cause it was just one mark and I easily forgot bout the itchiness when I'm busy.

But HOLY MOLY, 3 days ago, I got woken up by ITCH. Yes, itchy till I can't continue sleeping and that's how bad it is. I remembered scratching my arm in my sleep till I cannot tahan I woke up from bed to turn on the lights to see what's wrong. HORROR of the HORRORS, this is what I found:

6 FREAKING MARKS on my FREAKING ARM wtf. Can't believe these bugs just stung LAO NIANG for 6 times!!! (if one sting leaves a mark) T_______________T 

I went straight to the reception and complained to the management and SHOWED them the marks. They followed me to my room and checked if there's any fleece? don't even know what's it. And of course they didn't find any else I would have found out already. =_= and they said they will inform the pest control people. 

Not satisfied after complaining on FB, to friends, to flatmates, to management, to*you*, I have to involve daddie so I called him on skype and showed him the marks AND made him worried, then only I stopped.

ENDURED the itchiness with some useless ointment for A DAY and the next day, I woke up BY ITCHINESS AGAIN with these:

FMFL!!!!!!!! it was so swollen. I WENT to management again after getting an email saying that those people are coming on Friday (yesterday). Can't believe I actually slept on the bed again. #lucky they did not sting else I will totally go to the management and give them punches and kicks. #ya right.

On the third day, I went to London. So not picture of the marks. Will *try* to blog bout it. =) First thing was to get ointment from Boots and it was really good. Cause I don't feel itchy after that but then it might be because of the cold weather too cause the itch stops when its cold. Once in a long while it gets itchy and I just need to put the cream again. I put like three times all together when I was in London if I'm not wrong. 

At the same time, those people finally came to disinfect my bed and floor. I removed my bed sheet and left nothing on the bed but not the floor before I head to London. The guys MOVED my shoes and dustbin and all the other things on the floor and put them on the BED. how SMART. but I was too tired to even get angry so I just put everything back on the floor clean the bed a bit, and put on my bed sheets. 

Today, I didn't wake up from the itchiness *yay* and the marks look like this now: 

Still red but it's much better already, not so swollen at least. Seriously wish those bugs will be gone!!! T_T

Happy New Year 2012


All the best in 2012 people! Writing this post to record my resolutions for 2012. 

1. To complete my MSc in Applied Actuarial Science, I don't aim to get all the exemptions, just let me pass please. 

2. To cry less. I know right, it's first week and I've failed so bad already. I don't know why I have been crying so much ever since I come to UK. I really miss home, family and friends, always feel that they're so far and I'd be so much happier if i'm back home especially with *you*.

3. Greece and Amsterdam, and hopefully Lake District. 

4. Get a job, which I don't wish to >.< Visa ends 2013. I should travel all around Europe and UK before my Visa ends right. 

5. D.I.E.T. slim down back to 45kgs and below and NEVER gain above 45kg! 

6. Read all 7books of Harry Potter. *huge fan now*

7. Plan more. Procrastinate less. ( I know I'm not gonna achieve this. T_T )

8. Learn how to bake! and make macaroons! *fingers crossed*

Ok, I guess that's all for now. =D Rushing to watch the last 2 episodes of Harry Potter before going to the Harry Potter shop in London on Monday! Love!
