Name 3 things you are grateful today

First off, I would like to apologise for not linking you guys up in my newly layout-ted blog. I had problem with some of the HTML Colours/ Hyperlinks so I decided to just become your Followers :)

It's way easier this way because once you guys publish a post, I'm updated with it and I will be directed to your current post. Sounds good alright? I promise I'll be like a stalker with your blogs by refreshing every second ;P

I went to Handorf yesterday with the gang and it was crazy fun, until I board-off from the bus and started seeing stars. I'm not too sure if it was the road, the slight headache I had before, or the food (can't be), or the fact that I didn't have enough sleep the night before but something was definitely partying in my stomach. I don't believe I have motion sickness, I refuse to!

Pictures will be stolen (yet again) from Rubee, Audrey or Yuen, so it's just about a matter of time to wait for them to upload and show you the best ever-est beer I've ever tasted ever. Omg, English damn fail. But you get what I mean!

Spring is finally here, and that means as of today, more like few days back when we went to the beach - (that means) I will only get darker today onwards. I had a slight sunburned, my face is darkening (EMO) and my arms as well. Tension. If I'm like angmoh and has a tan nevermindlah, but I'm already naturally tanned and to get tanner means to have the unnatural tan. Means different skin tones. Pelik lah.

Omg wtf why am I being so superficial. Move along.

I think I told you guys before, if not here it is, I received one of the best door gift ever during an outing Mamak Night with the girls. It's a package with a set of questions you ask yourself or friends. I like it because it's personal, and it works as a game/ ice-breaker :)

I stuck a card on my table that has been a positive practice thus far. Jeff calls me a hippie, which I partially agree to. I'm a hippie in ways others aren't, and I'm not a hippie in ways others are. What I've learned is that, you can't label yourself, it would be biased and not true, others do it for you subconsciously. I love the symbolical peace signs no doubt, but I know deep within there's more to me then what I like/ dislike.

Today, Sunday I ask myself this;

1. Sun
2. Technology that connects me with my loved ones afar
3. Free time for myself

Hugs & Kisses,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.

Fix the World Up :)

Listening to - James Morrison Fix the World up For You

Before I begin anything pointless here, I'd just like to warn you that this post will probably be the vainest post you've ever read from me. Or seen. Well,

A. I know all of you aren't able to see most of my photos unless you're friends with my friends who uploads the photos, but my tagged photos. Na uh, I've disabled it ages ago because some pictures of me are indecent enough for young relatives' viewing. Think bottles, think opening mouth wide open. NO, not that. Like the ber-joli kind.
B. The pics are stolen from either Yuen, Audrey, Rachel, Rubee and Snowy and I
so tak tau malu.
C. I purposely chose those pictures with me in it

I know right.

Okay, okay. Considering the fact that some of you guys are my good friends, of course I'd like to share with you happy moments in my life, but because of A (refer above), I might seem sadly uneventful but contrary to my sad Facebook profile page, there are tons of things to talk about!

This might not be associated with all the photos below, but you know, feels nice to update of things that are random.

1. Dude, last push. And that's it. I'm done with Degree and I need to like, work my ass of already. One more month (plus) for that last push, and that's it.

Let's make the photos our intervals okay? My shitty rant will only bore you I know. Below is a photo, (I believe) Carmen took of us jumping at Bondi Beach Sydney. If you've been an avid follower of my blog, you've probably read on how awesome the beach was. Massive, white soft sands, surfers, I mean.. suns. Wtf, suns not even a word.

2. I need to slowly box up my stuffs and send them back home Sabah. It's so fast. Really, time flies by so fast that I forgot by the end of this month (hello Halloween), we're all packing up already, if not, we're thinking of packing up. And oh my God, I will miss this place. I will miss how easy it is for us to gather around and have dinner, watch movie together, for some strange reason, we just blend in. Err, pic stolen from Snowy.

3. Halloween is in 2 weeks time. I know, I need to like mentally prepare myself with my costume. Not to say it's the hardest, not to say it's the easiest either, it's just... over the top. I don't need to come up with a character's lines but I do have something in mind to say when people are guessing who the hell I am. Clue, who.

This picture was taken a few weeks back, random sentence passing through (omg Audrey). This was the second time we went to this place and it was pretty awesome I'd say. The first time we went was not only shitty, everything about it felt weird. Second time? Free drinks = no complain! :)

4. I am 21. Actually there's more to it, but I lost my train of thoughts. Okay, nevermind. I'm looking for a job, something that I could settle with as my first job and survive in KL while I'm at it. Anyone of you guys reading now knows of any openings, please email or message me. Sounds desperate, but actually I'm just trying to open possibilities. Trying to knock more doors before I get that job. I'll be in KL in January so let me know of any prospective interviews. Much, much appreciated :) Not bad ah, blog and this social networking thing is like publicising yourself. Okay, too much.

Thats me holding... Kickapoo. Kinda. Something that looks like Kickapoo. Anyhoo..

Okay, you guessed it. It's not Kickapoo.

My birthday as I previously blogged, was so much love. Really. I feel so sayang-ed. I got tons of gifts, just yesterday from Audrey a flashy top that I'm planning to wear one of these days. A handful of nail polishes and earrings from Yuen, Thomas and Jay, a gorgeous butterfly necklace from Carmen and a head-band from Cindy. But you all know, the company was all I needed. And I had loads of it :)

5. I'm like totally in love with love. I have yet to find myself sunkenly gloomy these days (except cold mornings and waking up early for damned classes) and the more I like being happy, or find love in all the weirdest places the more happier people I meet. It's beyond true.

:) The last photo is for youths our age. Because we are "young and dangerous". Okaylah, it was funny when I said that to Jeffrey that night.

Really, keep that in your head. We are young now. Later no-more!

I love you guys.

Hugs & Kisses,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.

A letter to a 65 year old

Tonight, I will post something a little different. Everyone I know have talked so much about the love they've earned, learned or yet to understand.

How in one minute strangling the person to death you argue with is just one step away, or, how nightmares turned starry skies, with just a phone call away in another minute. The reason I decided to do this unique post is because I've come to understand that at this age, you and I know relationships and human contacts come and disappear like a woman's scorn. But why is it so addictive?

Here goes:

Dear Jacqkie,

I wonder where you are and what you're doing when you read this next. I'm currently sitting with my back on the wall, three pillows stacked to support this supposedly young back-bone but somehow keeps cracking every day (I refuse to believe it's the drinking and dancing, because when I'm on the dancefloor I feel most alive). I hope yours doesn't crack as much, my well wishes! I'm cold and this winter jacket is least helpful. Anyway, this is a letter I write to you when I was 21. This whole thing might sound absurd especially since I'm posting it online, but I read once the practice of writing letters to the past or the future you is like a gift no one else can give you. A gift that no one remembers doing, yet wished they had.

I stumbled upon a magazine that day that interviewed a number of successful females, to write a letter to their past self which touched me so deeply, I decided to do the same. Oh yes, love. Love.

Where do I start?

I'm currently in a relationship with a guy I met 2 years a go. I was introduced to him through close friends, and though at that moment nothing seemed promising, everything changed when walls were broken. Chances are for him to sleep next to you tonight, is bright :) I have yet to know who that person is, but I am sure you made the greatest decision of your life. Ever since we were young, I've always been fascinated with the idea of "boy meets girl, girl meets boy". There's something about the way a 'special' person interacts with you that makes him different from the rest. I wonder whether the attraction that you had with this person remains the same with you now.

See, unlike most people I don't have the most trouble falling out of love. Because, it was also not easy to fall into it. We had the wackiest, depressing teenage years ever so acknowledging that I'm still so young and to hope that I could embrace each and every year of my life with different lovers, I detest. Frankly, I'm a hopeless romantic. I'd doodle my lover's name all over my notepad, and if there's a chance to sing for him on casual rush-hour jams, I would.

But see, the movies and songs taught us differently. Taught me differently. I used to think a man would fall in love with the girl with the brightest smile, and the most colourful dresses, but fortunately, and strangely, the love I experienced contradicts. I am a simple girl. I am fiercely opinionated, I am a short stumpy girl who sees the world a lot bigger than I do, and the only, only way to know the whole world before I die is to actually live. To actually do things that I might not be able to do anymore when I'm you're age (no offense :P), but to just live. I would never imagine a gorgeous man would love me just as much I am loved right now, but you see, it happened.

Love is not fate. It isn't, and I have agreed to this since young. Love doesn't happen miraculously, and magical sand-dust will never rain on you when you see that that taperson. Love means, getting to know the person. There are times when I wish to jump right to where you are, to skip these whole roller coaster process and just be satisfied with life already. I heard, when you've stayed too long in this world rules are like jokes. Is this true?

I love love. How about you, and how did you go through it? :)

Hugs & Kisses,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.

I'm 21!

:) It's good to be back!

Strange, it feels like studying here in Adelaide has made everything in life more in order as compared to back in KL. I don't know whether it's because Adelaide is such a slow-pace suburb, or because of the lesser workload, but I definitely feel less stressed here. My boyfriend on the other hand, has been complaining over the crazy clashing of datelines, and poor management from the school. I wish I can teleport myself and give him the biggest hug :)

My 21st birthday was celebrated here in Adelaide, and it's pure love and fun! I love my friends so much, and I can't imagine enjoying myself as much without them.

I sincerely think it was an extended 3days celebration. Audrey love invited us for dinner at her place the night before my birthday, and soon as it reached midnight the ladies sang me the birthday song! Cindy made some awesome self-made pasta, Audrey made red-sauce pasta, while Rubee & Mas brought Nasi Goreng Kampung. Aww, super touched and received a Shrek + Hannah Montana card from Audrey! During the day itself Cindy made me the awesomest bubble tea :)

Reached home at about 1am, and told myself to sleep early tomorrow so that I can wakeup earlier for much longer day of MY day. Woke up at 11am (good enough) and refused to cook lunch, so I bought lunch for Cindy and I instead & bought this awesome shit I got from this restaurant nearby, called Lemon Schweppe and it's to die for! Went to the kitchen and saw Carmen's gift & card. Awwww. Cindy came later to give me her present! :)

At night, the rest of the Magillians and I went to the infamous bar The Elephant to get some drinks. I was blessed enough to be sponsored of two tequila shots, one pancake shot (you should totally try this!) and got myself a Heineken, simply because I didn't wanted to get wasted. I wanted to get a cocktail drink, but by 12 (yes, we leave bars by 12) I was already half-ditzy.

True enough, when I bought a box of Iced-Coffee, when I reached home and drank it, I was so close of puking everything out. Speaking of getting wasted.

Finally had pancakes to satisfy my pancakes cravings last night, and Yuen gave me her present! To top it all, they surprise me with a tiramisu birthday cake with the whole bunch singing birthday to it. Deeply touched can or not. Here comes double aww, AWWWW AWWWW.

Before the boyfriend gets jealous, I forgot to tell you that I'm waiting for his parcel. I can't wait! He's so sweet, eventhough I will be back soon enough but he still send me the parcel for my birthday. Much love. My mum on the other hand SMSd me early in the morning, and the baby sister wished me the night before.

Pictures are with Audrey and Yuen, so thank you for going through all these words :) Pictures will be stolen from them and then put up once I retrieve them! Thank you so much for the wishes, the gifts, the cakes, the love, you know me, I will be eternally grateful :)

Last but not least, I'M LEGAL!

Hugs & Kisses,
Jacqueline Rowena @ Jacqkie.
