Await for my 2008 post, please

I ate alot this holiday. Tremendously alot, indescribably alot. For starters, mum cooked awesome food for Christmas, and food kept coming in, we don't even know when and how to stop. Of course, with goodwill power, I believe we can say no to all the Famous Amos, Chocolate Mint cakes, Pastas, Cheese cakes - but they're so tempting! With that said, alongside with billions of other posts that mentioned about diet- I shall always give diet a try!

I think I mentioned about Gaya Street to you guys that day. Every year (If I'm not mistaken), KK Churches organise Gaya Christmas Celebration along the street, which included activities such as carols and fireworks. I went to Gaya on the last nite, and it was quite cool I must say. I think I also did mention to you guys about carols oozes homely feeling, didn't I? Like, it seriously did! Chu Ni Men Sen Ten Kuai Li - is probably the most I know in Mandarin :) thanks to the multilingual Christmas song!

Here are some of the pics of tha…

More doctors in East Malaysia

I'm writing this post to plead to all the future doctors to be more considerate and passionate in what they do. Most importantly, if ever you choose to become a doctor, be more aware that other remote and rural areas are most in need of your help.

I know you have your home, your love, and your whole life ahead of you, but if you are yet in search for all that I've mentioned, please opt to help sick people instead of living in your comfort zone. You, doctors are powerful people - you can either change our direction in life, or give us another shot in changing the directions. There's definitely more to life than your lab coat and stetoscopes - this you know best.

I'm pleading this because my brother is currently an intern in the general hospital in KK. He starts off his day at 6.00AM, and reaches home latest by 12.30AM which makes it, 18 hours of working a day, 7 days a week. Although this might go on only for 2 weeks, but what I'm about to share with you is more than …

First Time Printed

Hello holiday people!

Sorry I haven't been updating much with substantial (rite) posts so far, I've been busy spending time with my family! Plus we only have one car, so I have to drive my mum around, and it could get tiring - especially when you have to wake up pretty early in the morning. Damn mengantuk.

I'm published in PASSIONS magazine people! It's my first time, please check it out! :)

The jam in KK is getting worst, probably because of all the renovations and upgrading process. To tell you the truth, KK is developing so fast I don't even recognise the roads anymore! It's so confusing, thankfully my baby sister leads me the way most of the time. There's too many shopping malls either, everything looks as if it's replicating KL. I think Kota Kinabalu is becoming much more advanced than some of the towns in West Malaysia. I do appreciate the works by Government, or by other manaegment trying to improve the living in Kota Kinabalu, but I do hope they do…

I am

waiting for you! :)
Love,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.

Stop mocking doctors or I'll skin you alive

I'm home!

The whole day was pretty blissful so far. Though I can't quite put it how I'm actually feeling about my brother finally becoming a practicing doctor now.

Okay I lied; I hate it. I think his friends' family would also hate the fact that these first two years are all about work, work and more work. I really need to tell myself that that is his job. That we are now secondary, and the least we could do is to expect least from him because he needs just that. I couldn't imagine taking away the rest he needs and the rejuvenation he requires.

I will give my love to this lovely home of mine, my beautiful mum and my sweet sister. My brother is where he's supposed and meant to be. I will always be there for him whenever he needs me because thats my job as the sister.

I really understand now, what people meant my - the struggle of the first few years of working and sweetheart, thank you for talking to me just now.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

Image
I'm currently awaiting the latest movie by David Fincher; The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. I don't think it would be good to watch it in the cinemas since they censore almost everything.

I've checked the reviews for this movie and 5/5 used so many words I never knew existed which only mean one thing; bravo. Rumour has it that this could be Brad Pitt's shot at Oscar for his remarkable daunting act. He has been a believable good actor so far, so I'm pretty excited to be a part of this 3 hour movie to witness what they say 'phenomenal'. And apparently, the cinematography for this movie is brilliant - which is the ultimate thumbs up for me.

The story by F. Scott Fitzgerald; started of with Benjamin Button's father abandoning him - horrified by the sight of his bizarre baby. Benjamin Button was born old - an old tiny man who lives his life in reverse, becoming younger by the year but has fallen in an impossible love with a lady. (Newsweek)

Listening to - Barking at the Moon Jenny Lewis


I'm going back next week, and huge part of me is pretty excited, while another pretty sad to leave sweets here (just for a couple of days - ahem) and his family because they have been extremely sweet to me; especially the baby brother. I will surely miss him and his endless efforts in entertaining me - he's a sweetheart!

I went shopping that day as I've proudly mentioned to you guys in my previous post. While it contradicts with my other post just before that post (damn, just scroll down) I manage to get myself a pair of Nose (heels mind you) and a dark blue capris. Which costed less than RM50 for both! Why I'm bragging you about my cheapskateness here - I actually, do not know.

I was so tempted to buy this Maroon pep toe that was so delicious, but extremely painful to be worn. I was trying it on infront of sweetheart and thank God he didn't liked it because if not, I would have bought it with blood all over my feet! It …

Shopping!

I'm going shopping tomorrow! Wookiieee! Actually, I'm going shopping to look for my family's presents! Its been so long since I last go to KL, so sweets and I are going downtown yo!

I hope to get things for meself as well, since Christmas is in three weeks time, and Christmas, is probably the valid-est excuse to shop ever! Like really! I shall update you what I bought for meself, though probably you couldn't possible care less, but gah - it's my blog! :)

I'm super bored these days, except those days when I'm spending time with sweets and his family, they make me miss mine soo much more - and I really can't wait to meet them next week!

Oh, oh, I got blisters that day for playing too much PS2. Like can you believe that, Jacqkie playing too much PS2? Thanks to Sweets' brother for accomnpanying me when I'm around, I ended up hours and hours on games!

Sekali, sekala bah kan.

Love,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.

Listening to- Justin Timberlake Summer Love

I went to watch Body of Lies with my brother the other day - this was impulsive. My brother wanted to go to MidValley for the last time before he finally leaves to KK (for good), so I decided to teman him eventhough we know all the shops would be closing on us. It was almost 10.

I was the one who dragged him to Mid Valley, for sentimental values, because no one, and I mean by NO ONE, I know has ever showed their affection for a mall before unlike him. Seriously. Every single time he's back from Johor or Seremban last time, MidValley was his definite first stop. If not, second. Anyway, I thought Body of Lies was okay. I mean of course Leonardo D'Caprio is excellent but something, just something is missing.

I was in church today, and that thought came to mind. Of course it's our state of mind that helps us distinct certain things between good, or bad. Then I remembered Mamma Mia! which my family and I thought was amazing especially Me…

Sims Next Top Model

Image
You know I used to tell myself never to update my blog if I have nothing interesting to talk about. But, I'm too blardy bored right now! *pulls hair*

Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you guys - I've been checking out The Sims' Next Top Model. HAHAHAHAHA. Like what the hell right. All the Sims look the same and it's so funny! I've been using alot of Youtube these days. Like freaking alot.

Went to watch Quarantine with the two boys yesterday. It scared the crap out of me. I don't like horror or thriller. The waiting, and the really loud noises, wait wait the graphic most especially creeps me out. Yerr, so bloody gory.

Then Swensen's for Ice-creams, with the gang.

Then drinks.


I'm trying hard not to shop for clothes. Really. I don't want to spend so much on clothes, and hopefully I'd get pretty accessories instead! :)

Love,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.

Internship anyone?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but last semester break not one single soul thought of working or interning in a communications' company or something that has got to do with their line of work. True? In contrast, last break I went back to KK slightly early to show my friends around KK and spend time with them, also with my family. After coming back from KK, I immediately went internship/ part time job hunting in all these communications companies so that I could gain experience or more contacts while I'm working. Before the holidays, not one person I know or (not know of) thought of this idea. And now. BAM. Everyone's doing it!

Frankly, I don't know why the sudden this become such a trend. I dare say that these people (my circles only) might, get this whole idea from me. Yes, I said it, ME. Or the "wind blew" SO BLARDY strong about my internship experience, that some might thought this was a good idea. I did remember people asking me about working as an intern in…

Boy Girl, big deal

Listening to Kylie Minogue's - Wow

In my defense, I did warned you I was going to blog whenever I feel like it. And apparently, I feel like blogging everyday... even when there's no bloody substance in it.

Screw this. Went to Section 14 with mah baby (who else) today, and had my usual awesome Hakka Mee *drools*. I've had that prolly one too many time a person can count, and I'm still having images of it in my head. *drools* again... On our way to the hawkers, we discussed about swapping genders - something like that, and asked each other, what would it be like if we change our genders with the opposite, for a day?

Me: I want a guy, to try and carry a handbag with all the stuffs inside thats not his!
Sweets: I want a girl, to try and be more relaxed, and not tensed more often than boys.
Me: I want a guy, to try wearing heels for one whole day!
Sweets: It would be cool to be a girl, and be able to eat and try all the food especially desserts because girls LIKES to try a lot o…

Listening to Dean Martin- Memories are made of This

"What are you going to do tonight?"
"...I. Don't. Know"
"...that's like the best answer ever."

I'm drugged with music right now, since I have a bucketfull of free time, I just ransacked my brother's playlist - and seriously, no like really, he's got THE BEST playlist ever. He's got Bob Dylan, to Bob Marley to Love Actually's soundtracks, to Duffy and to Crush On You to a box of CDs that I'm just waiting for the right moment to play 'em. Oh, and I'm officially on holiday now. It's not so special, it's only just...



THREE MONTHS SUCKAHS!
Okay, that sounded mean and bitchy. I'm sorry. I'm just so glad I'm on holidays now, but I reckon this excitement will be over in few more days 'cause waking up late everyday would wear off sooner or later right? Which means, it's time to unveil my things to do list! *jeng jeng jeng!*

Passions' Photoshoot

Image
Last week Calyn called me up for a photoshoot, and I contemplated on saying yes at first because I don't approve of sexy or obscene shootings/ photos of myself. But when Calyn told me I get to dress-up myself, I excitedly said yes! I'm definitely much more comfortable with my own clothings.

Anyway, when her colleague called me up to confirm with me the details and what not, I asked her whether I can bring Daren with me to the photoshoot, and guess what, she asked him to take part as well! Hahaha. He was dragged into it, without being able to say no! :)

Me: baby, I have something to tell you.
Baby: what ar.
Me: Tomorrow you're taking part on the photoshoot as well.
Baby: ..... (10 seconds of silence)
Me: Baby?
Baby: Oh my God. I AM DAMN SHY.

All I can share with you guys about the spread are; it'll be on December Issue of PASSIONS, it's about clubbing and partying, it's about youth-ism, and of some new year's resolutions. The photoshoot went tiringly well. It took a…

Why aren't you updating your blog?

Image
I've started on my last assignment, and honestly, I kinda like it. The whole trial and error is quite cool actually. Well, of course if you must know I've been sitting on this chair for at least (plus minus) 6 hours. I really don't mind, because I really learn how to do html and css from this assignment, plus I have to finish this work by Tuesday and worry about Business for a week. Yes, for a freaking week, because I really really can't afford to fail. If I fail, I'd smother myself with the business lecture notes because!; I have to see that Cruella again.

Since none of you actually gives a damn, I shall stop. Blood pressure gets higher when I talk about it. Anyway, it's only 12something but everyone else is already fast asleep. Me on the other hand is singing Britney's Womanizer.
I'm quite excited for this afternoon's shoot. I don't really know how big or small will my face gets published, or even whether it will make the cut, I'm still pre…

2 more weeks!

While Sweets was doing his IPD Assignment just now, I was pumped up blogging about cooking and food, because welll, I'm all about food. Now, my eyes are all droopy and I'm forcing myself to listen to some "clubbing" songs. Omg, NERD's Everybody Nose is too awesome not to replay it over and over again. Serious shit. It's quite of an awkward song, but I have to admit the beat makes me realise how I miss clubbing so much. I miss the loud music, I miss dancing with sweets and my girlfriends, I miss drinking, I miss dressing up from head to toe, I just miss having night outs! UNIVERSITY is robbing my life away. *asfdkasjdfchnsdh!*

Anyway, that aside. I must always remember, that the 3 months holiday is in two weeks time. Three blardy months people! Three! THREE! It's like insanely super cool, and I'm already scratching my head thinking what to do; KK (definaately), part time/internship (most likely) and open my arms wide open and fall to the bed. Oh Mercy,

F word!

Listening to Astro 865- Jazz

I really tried, really tried to. I was keeping myself busy by washing my clothes, sweeping my room floor, watching Hannah Montana and checking people's photos on Facebook, the evil-blogging spirit still manage to entice me to update! Grr.

I am supposed to update my "Academic Blog" but I couldn't because those stuffs are too darn boring so I decided to prostinate for abit. For goodness sake, I'd have to freaking reference my post! Okay, okay enough about my work. It seems like everyone else has been blogging about assignments, and school our readers would probably feel our sorrow.

After much learning about blogging phenomenon, and how it has affect people and their lives, I guess making my blog public to the eyes of the most weirdest or coolest people in the world, could only mean one thing; just leave it to their interpretation. Frankly, I'm not really worried or scared when strangers read my blog, I actually feel more awkward when p…

First Anniversary!

Embargoed- November 1, 2008

I know you've read way too much about me being head over heels with this one guy that you all seem to know of just by reading my posts. Well, blogging is so much easier if you write it from the heart.

Exactly one year ago, I got into a relationship with this guy from Subang. I wasn't really sure what could happen from this relationship, but well to be fair - none of us ever are right, but I decided to go with it anyway because I like him enough to be his girlfriend.I got a crush on him ever since I got to know him. Frankly speaking, I wasn't attracted to him at first, I perceived him as this "tall, dark and handsome" jock that I knew, just knew it, wouldn't go along with me because girls or girlfriends in this case would mean nothing to him. After much knowing, and talking, we finally got together because we like each other good enough to continue to see each other again. Dear sweetheart, before I start on my thank yous, I'd like…

Heels, Wedges!

I'm really not used to being sponged off my batteries for assignments. I feel like hamster. Everytime me and sweets goes to my place, we'd spend at least 5 minutes talking and about 2 hours schnoozing completely beyond our control, because we're too damn tired to even open our eyes and watch what's on tv.

While I figure out some strange comments I've been receiving lately, I shall let you know my needs and my wants, (more so of my wants because I don't think heels is considered a neccessity). Okay, okay I take that back before the fashion police catches me. I need to do some sandals/ heels/ wedges shopping. I don't know when, but probably one of these days when I'm really free and really rich. I need to eat some ice-cream, I actually bought one, which I can't wait to eat it, wohoo! Stress free, fat-full beb!

Okay back to the strange comments. Frankly, my dear fans ( I assume you are, then why are you here kepochi) how do you handle most importantly f…

Graduation 2008

Image
This week was shitty crazy. Never have I run so fast here and there for a damn assignment, and that too, I started off early. Goodness. It was crazy. Other than accumulative of 24 hours of no sleep, my Diploma Graduation ceremony was on last Saturday! :)

Thank you mummy, abang and ika, also my cousins who've pushed me all this time, and I must say it's all really because of you people! :)

I was contemplating whether to go for this ceremony, because it's just Diploma and by next year, I'm graduating again for Degree anyway... But Thankfully I didn't. The whole ceremony was really fun (okaylah I'm lying, it was 500 names!), and frankly I was beyond touched and thankful that my mum flew all the way from KK to attend my 5 seconds of fame. I was so happy too that I passed with a Merit, and I found out about it just that morning. Though I'm still not quite sure, what Merit really is, I assume it's good because there're only a couple of names under the Disti…

October Fest, seriously.

Image
Okay, my birthday was splendid. Sweets and my friends surprised me and Calyn with their presence after much lying of they're not being able to make it for my bday because its Hari Raya.

Thank you everyone for coming. Thank you baby, Audrey, Calyn, Sweei, Karen, Brian, Hamilton, Ron, Eric, Rachel, Amanda, Vivien, Carmen, Jenhan, Wilson, Melissa, Kerry and Syafiq for making Calyn and my day, pretty! To all my friends who can't make it but I just know and feel their love, thank you! I was so sure that there were 19 people that day, but I couldn't get the last person. Until, I forgot it was me. Super slowmo.

To Nolen, Anucia, Aunty & Uncle, Tai Yee (though I highly doubt you guys read this) you guys made me feel so loved and appreciated it's awesome! I'm grateful for the 'fake' present you guys wrapped for me, eventually the real one, but most importantly the companion. You know what, Nolen, I actually wonder how things would be like when you'll grow olde…
