The day I came back home :S n :D

I am really frustrated with what I had encountered today at LCCT. I went earlier to the terminal since I wanted to post another small luggage of books back home. So, Sze Nin and I took a taxi and we reached there around 10.45 am. We went to weigh our luggages at an empty counter to avoid overweight. I unpacked and packed my things for a couple of times. *well, I knew this would happen since I'm a shopaholic* Lucky for Sze Nin, her luggages were only 30 kgs, able to cover the weight that we were allow to carry.

Then, I went to a counter to ask about the postage thingy but surprisingly they told me they did not provide any kind of such service as I knew Crystal just posted hers 3 days ago. So, I tried my luck again at the service counter. The lady told me I had to go to the Megastore counter to sort that matter. That was how I ended up at the Megastore which is not Mega at all with only 2 Indian workers attended us in a small booth. Again, the same thing happen they said something about paperwork and registration but I told them the man at the counter said they do not provide any form for cargo service. So, I tried to explain that I had been attended to so many people and all of them asked me to go to another counters and lastly I ended here. He did help me to call somebody but the same thing happened again. He asked me to go to the Cargo Building opposite the terminal or call the building. I remembered Sze Nin tried to explain to one of them about my problem. Thanks dear for helping me up, I knew that you were as impatient as me already at that moment. Come on~ How on earth do u expect me to go there with 2 big luggages and my departure time is in one hour plus? I was really frustrated so I called Crystal for help. Thanks to Crystal and Edmond for trying hard to explain to me about the whole thing. However, I think the lucky lady was not on my side. I tried and tried and tried again at the service counter and the only thing they could say was "Sorry miss I can't help you since I never heard of this before" for almost 5 minutes. Then, I purposely smirked and thank them loudly for that. In the end, I tried out on9 for that thing since I remembered somebody said something about on9 registration but eventually I gave up since I was disconnected upon the submission of the form. I prayed to God for help since I only had 45 minutes more upon departure. So, I took my mom advice just to pay for the fine but in the end I begged the lady at the counter to let me carry the hand luggage which weighed 11.4 kgs and she allowed it. Thank you although I donno you but you are kind enough to help me. It saved me up to RM330. *mind you lkg=RM30 :s

I called Ka Phin to ask whether she needed cash since she said her luggages exceeded 30kgs too but I told her let me passed the bording hall checking first then I would find a way to help her. I passed the checking point since again I pleaded to the fierce-looking man as he instructed me to choose only one of my things. "Sir, can you please let me go this time? This is my last semester here as an university student. Please sir." He was kind enough too to make a pass signal with his hand although he still had the same facial expression. Thank you sir for that :DD Then, I waited 5 minutes for Ka Phin till I heard my name being called "This is the last call for passager Miss...Miss Sarah Kong Sing Ngik, please go to P12 immediately for departure." I decided to wait for Ka Phin in the plane as it was too late already. The flight attendant helped me to put my luggage in the overhead compartment which he described as heavy as rock. He must have wondered how on earth they allowed me to go into the plane with that. I was nervous when they closed the door without Ka Phin so I begged again but they said they couldn't help it as it is their policy to cancel the ticket if the passager did not enter 10 minutes before departure. He was actually concerned about that since he asked again what happen to Ka Phin that made her missed the flight.

I really hope Airasia would improve the cargo service and for my juniors please do not use cargo if possible. It is advisable not to bring too many things to university too if not you will regret on the day u go back. Thanks Ah Sze for accompaning me, thanks all the helpful kind people and may God bless you. As for Ka Phin, I am so sorry about that and hope you understand and most importantly Thank God for helping me and sending all those angels to help me :) Lesson of the day, sometimes we have to put down our dignity for help even plead who knows people are kind to offer their help. At least you tried, never try never know though I am very sorry that they had to break their company policies.

Lastly for those who feel that I am so naggy once you finished reading this. Many apologies :)

My last day as UKM student T.T

Today is my last day in UKM and this is my last time blogging as a UKM student. Memories of how I met my friends are still fresh. They were like yesterday. 6 years is not short and it is not too long either as it is imppossible for us to stay together with our friends forever. Well, these are some momeries that I still can recall when I met some of my friends for the first time in Kuching IPBL *I'll only describe the friends as anonymous as I can*shh...

One I met in the toilet where both of us introduced ourselves

One I recognised wrongly as the lecturer of the college since that friend's English proficiency is good

One I talked to the father rather than the friend since the friend was too quiet to talk to

One I recognised as the one that went for the interview with me before

One who is ladylike and wore lacy yellow skirt on the first day we met

One who introduced himself/herself infront of the class on the first day entering the class

One I disliked on the first day

One I recognised as the one who didn't like TESL at all

One whom parents my parents talked to

One who is very keen in dramas

One with very loud and unique laughter

One is very fair

Four with a title "The Fantastic Four" and one wanted to enter the group but was rejected

Some I couldn't recall how I become close to them but I can remember their characteristics. 6 years passed like wind. Now, we have parted and started our own ways. I can't guarantee that we will meet each others next time but we do learn a lot of things as we laughed, fought, cried together. Things like these will always remain in our memories. Something that we can laugh at when we think of in the future. I do hope that we can still talk and laugh together in the future when we see each other again because whenever I met my friends who talked akwardly with me after a long time I felt sad. Wishing all the best to you, my besties, friends,accompanies, MUF friends and other people that I have came across in these 6 years.

PS: Went out with my buddies today and we spent great time trying all sort of foods even at a Thai restaurant. Something that I could think of later XD

Potato and Green Apple Salad

This is my first post on recipe. I want to share this with all of you since I think it is quite easy to make and the outcome is fantastic especially for salad lovers. I have been making it twice and I am still going to make this whenever my friend and I crave for it.

Ingredients (for 3 persons)
2 potatoes, green onion cut into small pieces, 1/2 lemon, mayonaise, cream, salt, pepper powder, 2 boiled eggs and 3 apples.

1. Peel the potatoes and boil them with 1/2 tsp of salt water for 20 minutes (use fork to determine whether the potatoes are cooked).
2. Cut the potatoes, boiled egges and the green apples into bite size and put them aside.
3. Beat half can of cream with a few spoons of mayonaise together (the portion as u desire).
4. Mix the ingredients in step2 with the ingredients in step 3.
5. Squash the lemon and mix the juice with the ingredients in step 4.
6. Sprinkle a bit of pepper powder and some green onion as desire before refrigerate.
7. Finally, it is ready to be served.

*enclosed is the picture of the potato salad that I made the first time :D

Last few weeks

I am going to make this post short just to fill it up with a few crazy and unforgettable memories. These two weeks are the craziest weeks that I ever had before. Why? It is because I experienced all these in the last two weeks of my Uni life.

a) Went to Cheras Pasar Malam with my MUF friends for the first time in 2 years.
b) Went to Port Dickson with 16 other coursemates for the first time.
c) Had our first BBQ at the beach for the first time.
d) Had an adventurous experience on banana boat for the first time.
e) Had our 'Truth' bottle spinning game for the first time.
f) Conquered the 400 m Broga Hill for the first time *the journey started at 4.30 am*
e) Had durians at the roadside with friends for the first time.

Finally, my uni life is approaching its end. No doubt that I am going to miss every single friend and people who had been playing a part in my history. Thanks for being a part in my life, take care my friends and I wish you all the very best in your future undertakings.

忽然想起了爸爸的爸爸的故事。小时候,爸爸总爱给我们讲故事。那些都是从英文小甲虫-ladybird series' 的故事。有一天,书都读完了的一天。。。爸爸不耐烦的时候他说“来,我给你们讲爸爸的爸爸的故事。”其实是公公以前不耐烦讲给他的故事啦,爸爸华语不好所以就变成爸爸的爸爸的故事咯~刚开始的时候还很认真的讲到,到后面就开始大笑了-




Some uncertainties...

What can I say? I am back. Oh great! Mom told me as we oovoo-ed a couple of days ago that she will be going soon in a couple of months. Why is it have to be so soon? I am not ready about this yet. Not now. I know that people will be thinking must I sound pathetic and helpless but I just can't help. Some people of my age have settled down, some even have gotten themselves married with children. I guess I just can't be like them. Most importantly I am not close to what they are and not attached to any kind of relationship that you can mention. I can't see myself being alone and finding things to occupy myself just to forget all this loneliness. Mind you I am actually kind of scared that I might get comfortable with all this loneliness thingy. This is because I have withnessed quite a lot of lonely people's lives and believe me you are not going to like them. May be majority of them. They are usually dominated and they find themselves hard to tolerate with others and think in other peoples' shoes.

Enough of sad and solemn things. Finally, my buddies and I have settled our tour fees and we had gotten our Malaysian Ringgits changed to Korean Wons. They are pretty cute and colourful. More to Chinese culture I should say. It is nice to have something different in your hands rather than looking at all the 'Agongs' sometimes. We spent a great time together having our steamboat buffet at ShabuOne too. It would be better if I could find the Korean Raddish Pickles that I have been hunting for quite a while. May be can someone kind enough to tell me where to get them? What more I can say? Just have to wait for a few weeks then Woo-hoo~Korea, here I come!
