So, if I get the chance to buy a new glasses again, I promised myself that I will find a nice and affordable pair of glasses which will not make me look like a teacher or even Lydia Sum. While browsing the net, I found myself falling in love with the Holiday frames. The frames are so cute and fashionable. Good enough to make me look like a college student. Besides, the frames they have are indeed suitable for different kinds of occasions. For example, when I feel like going vintage, I will go for this cute, round frame:
When I feel summer, I'll choose this:
If I want to go for a sporty look, I'll go for this instead:
Ahh! Too many frames for me to choose... Why don't you guys go and have a look and let me know which kind of frame would suit me?

CL and I were the ushers so, we had to put on the Santa's hat and reindeer's ears. There were some who even brought their own Santa's hat! So cute...
Christmas carols were performed by our own KTT CF choir team! I'm one of them k... We sang Feliz Navidad, First Noel (NOT Joel), O Come O Ye Faithful and some other really nice songs.
After the Christmas carols, we watched a movie: Pay It Forward. It's a really nice movie even though I didn't really think it was relevant. After watching the movie, I was wondering whether such thing, pay it forward, will really work or not. Hmph...
We had Christmas gift exchange after the movie. I bought a handwash as a gift. Wonder why my friends think it's ridiculous. I think it's a really good gift compared to photo frames, chocolates and etc because you can actually use it for your own good! ;) Btw, I got Aunt Liz's gift which is a mini radio tuner. Super cute!
CF Christmas Celebration was really a good fellowship. However, it is important to remind ourselves the true meaning of Christmas: Jesus Christ. And also to deliver the Good News to others who have not heard of it. Christmas is the day we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ!
Lastly, I would like to wish all of you a belated Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year! May God bless all of you! :)
Since I, Hammer the Spammer, has been away for quite some time on this pink blog, I am back here once again to give you guys some words of wisdom in time gloomy time of global economy recession. I am sure you would have at least read about the current economy crisis going around the region. Headlines are everywhere talking about possible losses of mega corporations and big businesses.
I believe that in this time where everything just seems unstable, we must keep in mind about something. We should learn to manage our finances well. Do not simply spend. Overspending only means debts piling up waiting to literally ‘chop off’ your head.
Well, do not point fingers and yell, “No, it would never happen to me!”
The truth is, debt knows no skin colour or financial status. If it can happen to a businessman, it can also happen to an average Joe or an average Jane like you and I. Debts come in many forms. It may be just as simple as the debt you owe over your credit card bill. Do not underestimate debt. It causes you plenty of headache and trust me, you might even lose precious sleep when debts overwhelm you.
Always keep in mind – you do not need to spend the money you do not have to impress the people you do not like. Avoid Bankruptcy today.

Lastly, I know I'm very late but, just want to wish all of you a Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year! May God bless all of you!

Btw, there are loads of things for my to post about; CF Christmas and etc.. Unfortunately, all of these will have to wait as I can only do that after I get back to Miri. I had been disconnected from my college's WiFi. :( So, I will have to subscribe again if I want the connection back. I guess I'll just have to do so next year coz' it's so alang-alang to do it now.
Alright! I better stop now! Stay tuned for my posts:)
Lastly, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Btw, speaking of basic skills, do you have basic skills? Haha! What I'm saying is the basic skills of changing a flat tyre. Well, not everybody does but, believe or not, I do know how to change a flat tyre!
Last few days, I went out to have brunch with Louis, Zhi Chiat, Qi Ying and Mandy. When we were leaving, we realised that Qi Ying had a flat tyre! While they were starting to panic, I remained calm and confidently confessed to them that I know how to save the day! Unfortunately, they didn't believe me. So, I got the boys to do the work. Well, my skills weren't that complete afterall after realising that we shouldn't lift the car up before unscrewing the screws! But, slowly, we gained the momentum and get the tyre changed. Such an interesting experience. We didn't even get anyone to help out too. I'm so proud of my lil' brothers!
In the end, Kok How, who were supposed to come to help, didn't come because we finished earlier than we expected. After changing the tyre, Qi Ying drove to the petrol kiosk to pump some air into the tyres.

After talking about prevalence of obesity and the importance of health in adolescents, I would like to focus on varsity life in this post. Most of the readers here I believe are pre-university or some are even already studying in colleges and universities now. Let's not dwell on studies proper.
I want to bring across the topic of accommodation. I believe that a good accommodation is one of the factors that contribute to a student's well being. Stay in a dirty place and you end up agitated or easily depressed. It is therefore very important to do a well search and probe into the market to get a good private accommodation deal. There are various landlords and agents you can look into before deciding which house or flat to take on. Of course, house mates play a huge role. Get the wrong ones and you become the free labour for housework. Get dishonest house mates and soon you would go bankrupt because one may be finishing your sausages supply in the fridge, another may just keep the change he finds on the living room table in his pocket and that sort of horrid tales.
Well, I know quite a few friends who are studying in University of Leeds. I deem the place pretty good. If you are in Leeds and are looking for student flats in leeds, perhaps you can find Pickard Properties, the one being voted as No. 1 in Leeds.

Not many people know that I actually have short-sightedness. I have been prescribed eyeglasses quite some time ago, but because I usually do not like myself in glasses, I end up not using them. I squint and trouble my eyes. It is only recently that I realised, "enough is enough!" I need to wear them and wear them well.
Well, you can assume that I never really had very good experiences when it comes to purchasing eyeglasses. I really love those funky, trendy ones but then they can be so expensive that they burn my small little pocket. A college student like me surviving on very minimal allowances yet I still want to go about with various trendy eyewears, am I asking for too much?
You can say some blessings come in different packages. I found out that indeed, I can own pairs of trendy and fashionable eyeglasses from Optical4Less.com. This online optical shop definitely revolutionise the entire eyeglasses industry. It has great offers on quality and fashionable eyeglasses that cater for a wide range of tastes and fashion sense. Tell me, a pair of quality eyeglasses for USD$15, where else can you find such amazing deals?
Gone are the days when I would be purchasing prescription eyeglasses once in every 3 years. With the same amount, I probably can buy 10 pairs on shot. Just imagine turning up with different frames each day. I definitely sizzle up my life, not to mention, creating a fashion statement with every brand new day.
Optical4Less.com is worth looking into. They do not impose hidden charges - shipping is free worldwide if you buy two or more pairs. Hey, sounds just so cool. I think I am up to protecting my eyes once more. This time, I shall make sure I get those frames which would actually fit the shape of my head.
'Til then, be funky, people!

Alright! Here are some pictures we took:
After swimming, we went to Exquisine for dinner. Also went to eat fried ice-cream at a nearby cafe.

The night before the showdown, we heard that Federer was going to have an autogprah session with fans. So, we decided to go for that too! We prepared the things to bring: cards, tennis ball, cap etc.
On the big day itself, we woke up early in the morning and took a cab down to KLCC. After we arrived, we quickly went to find the venue and queue up. After almost 2 hours of waiting, we finally meet Federer! It didn't take a very long time for us to get his autograph. It was super-exciting!
After the session, we went to have lunch and went back to ErJie's apartment. After taking a short nap, we got ready again and walked to Putra Stadium. We arrived there quite early too so, we had to wait again. After almost 1 hour+ of waiting, they finally opened the gates and we quickly rushed in to find our seats. Our seats were quite front so, it's just nice for us to sit there. Btw, the players were warming up already when we came in.
The show started at around 7pm++. There were 3 matches: 2 singles and 1 doubles. John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg played first followed by Federer and James Blake. After the singles, the USA team (Blake and McEnroe) played agaisnt the European team (Federer and Borg). It was wonderful and awesome to watch them play live. Incredible experience!
1. Take a recent picture of yourself or take a picture of yourself right now.
2. Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair... just take a picture.
3. Post that picture with NO editing.
4. Post these instruction with your picture.
5. Tag 5 people to do this.
I tag Sherp, Ah Ning, Lynna, Lynnx01 and Joaquina!
Btw, that's not really my point. Speaking of Macau, the place itself really reminds me of casinos! I heard there are loads of casinos there. It's like an Asian version of Las Vegas. It's the place where people love to go because of the casinos. But, worried not my casino-lovers as you can always drop by this really cool online casino.
Speaking of casinos, one of the most interesting games, for me, would be: blackjack. Not that I know a lot about it but, I do know Money-Casino.com has multi-hand blackjack, where players can play up to 4 hands in a single round. As many blackjack players know, multi-hand blackjack is a faster, more exciting and more challenging way to play this popular game. It's really a cool game but, I haven't really learned how to play it yet. I'm a very slow and blurr learner ok? Haha!
The best thing about it is that there are tips and strategies for those who want to learn. Find them all in the online magazine by Money-Casino.com.

I had my last papers on Thursday and right after that, my friends and I went out to Seremban. We went to watch Twilight which was super exciting and had a great dinner. It was really fun to hang out with my college friends. We were so busy shopping that we had to go back late at around 8.30pm! But, thank God we found some taxis that were willing to send us to the train station. After we got back, we had a slumber party and stayed up till 3am.
On the way to train station!
Yasmin, the Birthday Girl!
Ah Xia, Ziqah, Me and Suraya!
Us having breakfast at cafe on the next morning
Yesterday, Michelle and I were on the same flight! I haven't met her since a 1 month + ago. Really miss that girl. There was so much to catch up with that we kept talking the whole way. Not forgetting, she's a big fan of Harvest Moon. She was playing it on the laptop the whole flight! As for me, I just watched a few videos just to keep myself entertained. Btw, I'm currently playing Animal Crossing now. Love that game! ;)
We even bought each other an AirAsia X'mas keychain. The keychain is really nice and we really wanted it but, it's a lil' expensive. So, we decided to buy for each other so, it wouldn't sound as if we bought it for ourselves. Haha!
And now, I'm back home here enjoying myself! It really feels good to be home and I'm gonna enjoy it to the fullest!
P/s: Btw, I've been wondering what is 5.11 Tactical Jacket and now, I finally know what it is! ;)

Btw, just got back from ErJie's place. Went to watch the Showdown of Champions on Tuesday and it was awesome! Going to blog about it after my exams so, stay tune!

When Lynna downloaded the first episode, I was thinking, "What a lame drama!". Then, after recommended by my sister's housemate, Sing Ean, I decided to give it a try. The lame drama actually turned out to be super nice and funny! I enjoyed a lot when I watched it. Rainie Yang did a very good job on her 'weird' role. Besides, it's Wilber Pan's first time acting and I must really admit that he had done a really good job! Although he had loads of NGs, I think he really performed well.
So, what are you all waiting for? Huhu!

We went there quite early for dinner so, the place wasn't packed with hungry people yet. ErJie ordered her favourite TomYam while I went for its special Fish Chop. Besides, I also ordered my favourite onion rings!
The food was not bad at all especially the onion rings! Yum~ Overall, the place is quite nice with all the lightings. And... They even have a big LCD screen to project some special shows like a football match.
Btw, they are serving lunch starting Nov 3 too. One of the food they will serve for lunch is steamed fish. That's exactly what the boss told us about. So, don't hesistate to give GaGa Garden a try!
