Here I Am Again...

...typing out this...umm...thing =). So, in school, I received a shocking news! 1st Assessment Test starts on 1 March 2005! Ahhhh!!! Run for your life! Okay, sorry! Well, I know that it will be held on the 1st week of March, but I didn't expect it to start on the first day of the month =(. Booo!!! Sigh~ I haven't started studying although I know that I'm going to face some stiff competition. I have to cram, cram and cram facts and figures(data).

I lack of energy now after Chinese New Year, too busy counting my ang pao money =P. Nah, just kidding =P. Well, I "did" count ONCE, but I don't count again and again, I have a life you know =). Studies!!! Ahh~ Need to hire cheerleaders to cheer me on and support me! Yay =P!!!

I better talk about something else besides academic. Hmm...let's see. Oh right! MSN Messenger is STUPID!!! Microsoft forces me to download the new version! They're so smart, they annoy me! Grr... Now I can't chat, I MUST download the new version, and I don't think there are any changes, except for the change in version number of course ;). I want to chat! But the stupid programmers programmed the software such that if there are any updates, they will force people like me to update! SKVNSDOVNSNCKADQAJD!!

Eeee!! No use talking about it right now. I guess I have to wait until it finishes downloading the new version into my PC. Oh man!! Look at the time! I can't play SimCity 4 now =(. Oh well...

Alright that's that I guess. Oh yeah, have a Happy Valentine's Day to everyone, don't forget to give a love-shaped box of chocolates to your boyfriend or girlfriend. If you can't afford it, buy flowers instead. If you are MEGA-RICH after collecting so many ang paos, I suggest you buy him/her Mercedes-Benz =P.

Bah, I'm going now. Ta-ta!

The 12 Zodiacs in Chinese Culture

Each year in the Chinese calendar is represented by 12 signs of animals. The animals, in turn, are elemental, and it takes 60 years to complete a whole cycle of different elemental animals. If I'm not mistaken, they're Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Hmm...Illumatinati...ummm...nevermind, forget about that.

This year is the Year of the Rooster, the 10th animal. The animals in order are:

鼠: mouse
牛: cow
虎: tiger
兔: rabbit
龙: dragon
蛇: snake
马: horse
羊: goat
猴: monkey
鸡: chicken
狗: dog
猪: pig

And the cycle starts all over again with a different element. Cheers!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Hmm...it's that time again. Its one of those times that I can touch the sky! Why do I say that?!

Ang Paos Keep Flooding In!!!

Whoo! It's so cool! I had managed to collect hundreds and thousands of dollars =D. Okay, I'm exaggerating. Well, it's a lot less than that, but it's still a lot. I'm not telling =P. Hehe...This year, Chinese all over the world are celebrating the Lunar/Chinese New Year, with this year the Year of the Rooster, Cock, Chicken, Hen or watever you call it. They're the same birds who don't fly well. And they're pretty delicious too ;).

What was I supposed to say again? Oh yeah. I went to Miri on the eve of the New Year. Did some of my homework there(I'm so rajin leh =P), then go shopping!!! Yay!! Waahhh!!! So damn cheap man!!! The prices...unbelievable! And the food! Especially Kolo Mee =D. So nice.

That's what I basically do. It's almost similar as a pig's life. Eat, sleep and play. I would like to include shopping too. Hai~ My feet are aching! Not it's not. At least I am healthy and fit. Hmm...also swam at the suites' swimming pool. Nice. But got tired so easily from doing the front crawl. It's less than 25 m long I think...or is it 25 m long? Don't really care anyway. The important thing is that I had fun! Woo-hoo!

While in Miri, and the strike of 12 midnight, I was woken up by the sound of firecrackers. One word: Splendid! It was a very beautiful show! Sigh~ I wish Brunei can also hold these kinds of marvelous firworks display. No offense. It's better than the July 15 fireworks, and the N-day fireworks. It's not that I got anything against that, I feel that it can be made much more better. And also, when my family are about to go back to Brunei, we witnessed a complete Lion Dance. Very cool! It's unlike any Lion Dance I see.

I guess I have nothing else to write. And Febby's going to end soon, there's only 28 days. And that means for workers, they're going to get their hands on the salary. Mom probably cannot wait. We're already on a tight budget crisis, after spending much on Miri's shopping, and after the give-away of ang paos to the people she knows. Lol...

Bye people! Wish everyone a happy and prosperous Chinese New Year.

New Layout!

Oh, its the first day of February. Sigh~. Now must suffer 9 months of hell. Anyway, new layout! Featuring Link, that cute little guy from The Legend of Zelda game. He's now in his adult form in the picture I guess...

So what do you think? I don't seem to have the time to create my own layouts. Its very troublesome, time-consuming, tedious etc etc etc. (I know, I know, excuses, excuses.) Oh yeah, and I also would like to wish my Ta KoKo...

A VERY HAPPY 28TH BIRTHDAY!!! (I hope I'm not wrong)

Hehehe...that's it for this post. Short, as usual. Alright, I see you guys soon. Ta-da!
