Aunt's Birthday

I bet some of you must be wondering about my absence for the past two days. On the 19th I was in Malacca celebrating my aunt's birthday, and on the 20th I was out the entire day. Couldn't find time to blog 'cause I was too exhausted with the sardine-packed travelling and event schedules.


Last Saturday(19th) was my aunt's birthday dinner. All these while, I don't really know her name and I rely on the 'panggilan' "mak ehm". She's my grandmother's first-husband's son's wife. A little complicated huh? There were about 100 over relatives that turned up at the dinner.

I'll proceed with the pictures to do the talking. :)


^Sorry, the trip to Malacca was really boring.


^4 people cramming the backseat of a Hyundai Matrix can cause butt-aches. Bumpy roads caused the shaky hands.


^L-R - My sisters with Cousin Russell trying to join the picture. Cousin Grace and my sisters (again).


^Clockwise from Top Left - Cousin Russell. My brother, and Cousin David. My father and birthday girl woman. Nephew Ah Lun.



^Clockwise from Top Left - Cousin Pei Pei and niece Lum Lum. This is what happened when you have three drunk-ees on the stage :P. Cousin Justin and my brother. My brother fascinated with the aunties on stage.





^A few of the dishes served.



^Clockwise from Left Top - My family without my father, with cousin Grace and birthday aunt. Birthday cake with the stage backdrop. Cake cutting ceremony right after the shortest 'laungan' "Yam Seng" I ever heard ><.


^L-R - Dad and Uncle Roger loosing their breath in the Karaoke session. Niece Mei Mei.



^Clockwise from Top Left - Back in the house in Kampung Machap Bharu, with 50 relatives jam-packed the house - majorities are kids, so the house was like Pasar Malam that night. Niece Mei Mei again. Cousin Grace. My mom and dad.



^Clockwise from Top Left - Cousin Roy and my sister. My sister and Cousin David. Cousin Grace and my sisters. Cousin David, niece Mei Mei and my sister.


It's really nice to have such gathering once in awhile. I'll be able to meet my relatives and keep up with their on-goings. I'm really blessed to have born into this unique bloodline - inheriting the Chinese Straits (a.k.a. Baba Nyonya) blood and practicing its culture. I'm still trying to learn the Baba Nyonya language though. =P


I shall go back to my Moral books now.

Don't worry, we're on the same path. The only difference is that your add maths before this was quite good, while mine is BAD! >< Hehe~ don't worry, I'm sure you'll do just fine - perhaps excellently.

Keputusan Semak Semula

Ummm, I've just received the reply letter from Malaysia Examinations Syndicate earlier today.
3 months ago, my father made me appeal for a recheck on my SPM results because he wasn't very satisfied (neither was I, but there was nothing much I can do about it; afterall, I tried my best, no?) - and the results are finally out.





RM250 gone down the drain just like that. I told him already that it was no use, but he didn't want to listen. Oh well..

Why Taylor's College?

Many of my Sunway College friends have asked me this particular question,

"Why did you choose
Taylor's College
instead of
Sunway College?"


My answer/explanation is actually quite simple - ummmmm, perhaps NOT that simple.



Lets run down the road of history, lets say, about 2 months ago.


I was filled with indecisiveness in regard of choosing between two colleges for my Cambridge A Level Programme, Taylor's College and Sunway College. My parents were very fond of sending me to the former, whilst I preferred the latter. Thus, to reach a conclusion, I decided to take a ride down to both colleges one fine morning to personally enquire more about their campus, programme, and offers.


My first stop was Taylor's College Subang Jaya.


TCSJ Lady : Hi there, boy. How can I help you?
Me : (Feeling a little nervous) Err, I want to enquire about your 'A' Level Programme.
TCSJLady : Alright, sit right here and I'll be right back. *Point to a chair while taking a few pieces of b…
