09 vs 17

So.......................................................

I am like a thousand percent positive that no one around me blogs anymore because, there ain't nobody, who has got time for that. See we all used to be such KIDS, blogging about our days back then every single day, as if they were significant. All those tears shed for the silliest reasons ever. Do they matter now? NO. Well, I mean, we have to go through stuff to learn stuff, so in a sense everything matters and nothing does.

Anyway, I used to be one of those kids who blogged for the sake of blogging at the beginning, recording down every single day of my life even though they were all equally boring and similar and repetitive, and I didn't even bothered using proper grammar or proper words, nor did I bothered to record things down properly. So reading back on my posts the first two or three years when I started blogging right now, I have these thoughts:

1. What am I talking about?
2. HUH?????
3. Who in the world is (insert name here) See, people do eventually become irrelevant.

All in all, everything sounded so silly and everything made me cringe!

Okay, so recently I've been feeling rather annoyed and a little bit angry even, and I initially logged back into my long abandoned blog to let off some steam but somehow I ended up reading some of my old posts from 9 years ago. That's when I found how much these tags thing are the stuff back then. I thought I'd redo them now, and see how my answer now will differ from 9 years ago.

Mannnn this gon' be funnnnnnnnnnn.

(Those in black are answered by 2009 me, those in blue are answered by 2017 me.)

Tag Rules:
1. The rules of the games get posted at the beginning.
2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their name, then goes to their blogs and leaves a comment, letting them to know they got tagged and to ask them to play and read your blog.
(BASICALLY, it's just a strategy to help yourself earn more readers lol)

Have you been on a plane
duh.
yes (okay, see, why can't we just answer properly and politely when people ask us things? I admit I get annoyed sometimes, too, when people ask me questions which have obvious answers, but when you think about it, it's only obvious to you, not everyone has the same mind as you and so what's obvious to you might be vague to them and VICE VERSA. ALSO, 2009 me, don't be mean, not everyone has the privilege to experience a plane ride. y u gon act all gangsta.)

Broken someone’s heart
I dunno.. Hope not..
haven't we all at one point broke someone's heart and at another have our hearts broken? it happens either intentionally or unintentionally. sometimes some actions must be made even though it might hurt some people. not gonna go any deeper than that, but to answer this question, sorry me from nine years ago.......

I REMEMBER WHEN IN STANDARD 4 TOO! I literally laughed so hard I fell off the chair. I think that was the first and last time till date.

Sat by the phone all night waiting for someone to call
i'm not tat crazy. LOL
at one point or more than one point of your life, you're gonna have some minor/major responsibilities of collecting stuff from/passing stuff to someone, and at times, this someone will happen to be a cb who will tell you, 'oh, i'm not there yet, but i will call you when i get there' signing it off with 'within 10 minutes', 'by XX hour', so you wait for them to call you but they NEVERRR DIDDDD. (and so you keep their stuff forever)

Like picnics
never had one.
there there, 13 year old me, don't sound so sad about never having a picnic back then. some things don't happen because it's 1. not meant to happen to you or 2. it isn't time for it to happen yet. for picnic, it's the second one. because a few years later you made some pretty awesome friends and, 

 BAM.
BAM.

First picnic ever and it was a lot of fun. According to Ah Si's caption, we were a bunch of kids who were going to have final exams soon but we all still took the time out to make this picnic happen. That's love. xx

Who was the last person you danced with
WAH! ALOT LOH! technique class with all major grades. UNCOUNTABLE! UNLISTABLE too.
1. 'unlistable' is not a word, but i know it can be. 
2. i'm quite jealous of 13 year old me who still did ballet.
3. life in university now involved a lot of dancing so i'm happy still :D
4. the last person i danced with was myself because many times when i'm home alone and the music is playing i just start dancing, also, i have snapchat and snapchat has filters that have some pretty nice music and i just... gotta move

Last person who made you smile
Jovynn Yeong. I just thought of the F*** video.
13 year old me because reading all those answers just... HAHAHAHAH. I do wonder WHAT F*** video tho...

well, it's not a stuffed animal, it's a headrest given by a friend, that has a face of an animal on it, and it had a sleeping eye patch that came along with it, but we don't know if it's a chick or a duck, so we call the headrest chuck and the eye patch dick because

May we all just continue to improve ourselves and be the person we'd like :)

to the many yous

I really don't like leaving behind words and memories that are unhappy. I try not to, so that when one random day when I feel bored and decide to read back on my own old stuff, it will reduce the chance of me coming across a memory that is unhappy. But right now I think I need to let some stuff out. I really need to.

At one point in life we all find something amazing, something too good to be true, something we want to hold on to forever, something that we hope and hope and hope that it will stay that way forever. There are times, there are things, that we don't want to ever change. But the fact is, what is the same? What ever stays the same? Nothing is ever the same because however hard you try to keep it that way, no matter how much fucking effort you put in trying to keep it the same, it is already different.

The fact is that everything has changed.

Everyfuckingthing.

Once upon a time I thought this was easy, not because they really were easy, not because I think of myself as a capable individual, maybe because of those two factors, but mainly, mostly, most importantly, it was because I thought, no matter how hard things get, they will never ever be that bad, because I had you. I had all of you. There was so much. We were so sure.

But now, I'm really not.

I feel lost. Not because I've gone off track, but because I'm not sure if it's still right going on without you. The you that I once had.

I feel very alone. Not because I'm here alone, but because it's as they said, I am among people, but I still feel lonely. There is nothing I can say that you will willingly listen to. There kind of never was.

Most of all, the reason why I'm writing this,

is because I feel sad.

I don't know why I didn't want to admit it. I don't know why I find it so difficult to admit it, but I feel sad. I feel sad most of the times recently, I feel sad about many things, and these things aren't the ones that would make you feel better just by talking about them. I don't know why this is so hard.

One look. One goddamn look was all it took. One fucking look was the trigger of many many many things I tried so hard to keep away from you. I thought I could do it. I really thought I had it together. This isn't the first time I saw this look, but it still hurt like the first time, possibly even more than that.

Maybe things changed the moment you feel you the need to give me that look. And the thing is, even if things didn't change then, they definitely will not be different anymore because I cannot pretend that I didn't see it. I saw it. I remembered it, and I'm going to remember it for a long time. That's both my blessing and my curse. I remember everything too well.

I remember the face, and I remember the hurt.

Ok.

I am very sad.

Thanks for the fun times guys. None of you will see this but I really love you all. I don't even remember who was in the room when we finished our performance and I was just lying on the floor and suddenly sat up and annoucned, "weih, 我很爱你们叻。" 
Because that time there was this sudden moment where EVERY frame of every moment we had together, every moment of me watching you guys laughing and having fun together, all flashed by my mind, and I couldn't contain the feels. 
I really regret not getting more group photos and forgetting about photos with each of you all. 
I can only remember all these moments, which is also enough, but there could have been more, but I stupidly forgotten.
I really hope there would be more times in the future where all of us will still be together.
I hope all of us stay friends always. 
Thank you all for all of this. 


Sincerely, 
Capt.

Note to self.

I know words are inadequate to perfectly or completely describe or express a feeling. That's why it's always so difficult (or not easy) to answer questions like, "what do you want?", "what are you looking for?" What if what we described wasn't up to par with what we really want in our lives, right?

It's already difficult to explain a feeling for something, let alone a someone. People are very complex beings, because we all have different brains, minds, body and soul. We are all different, yet beautiful all the same. Anyway, in addition to the difficulty and the somehow lack of words in the dictionary or the lack of vocabulary of ourselves, there is the fear of rejection when you express a feeling you have for someone once you tell them how you feel and what you think of them.

What if you're not as important to them as they are to you?

What if the moments that you spent with them made the best memories in your mind, but to them, it was just another day?

That's what we fear, that's what we want to avoid, to be in a one-sided relationship, be it with a friend or a significant other or a family member. It'll suck.

BUT.

But but but.

What we forget sometimes it's that, we are all people. That's the thing. We are all people. Different as we are there has to be something that we all have in common, and I think the thing is, love. Don't we all like to be told that we are loved and wanted? Don't we all want to feel loved and needed? If you do, surely the other person, too.

Yes, we might grow up differently and think differently and all, but we all need love.

And sometimes, people are really blunt. I'm not saying everyone is like that, I say this simply because I am like that, and if there is one person who is like that, there has to be other people who are like that, too. Which means, we need to be told! (Hahahahahaha)

“世界上最遥远的距离不是生离死别,而是我站在你面前你却不知道我爱你。”

To some people this might sound all bittersweet and romantic and all that, but to people like me, I'd be like, “你都没有跟我讲你爱我,我哪里知道你爱我 JIEK?”

I know, I know, sometimes you gotta FEEL it. And don't get me wrong, you CAN feel it at times. But loving someone isn't a bad thing, right? It's one thing to feel ashamed when you've done something wrong and terrible, and want to hide it from the lights and eyes of the world, but, this is love we're talking about. If you appreciate it when your siblings you usually have a love-hate relationship with suddenly buys you snacks or something, you tell them; if you appreciate it when your friend helps you out with homework or something, you tell them; if you appreciate it when your mom cooks food for you everyday, you tell her. Because the problem with us is that we convey and spread negativity (complaints, etc) to the outside, and we hide and keep the positivity (our love for things and people) inside, when it should be the other way around.

Besides, Ted said,


Point being, you have to let people know if they are important to you. It'll make their day, and yours, too. Because love, even in the simplest form, is contagious, and it forms a ripple.

So have no fear, and just love on.

semester break

I've made a few promises to myself to get a few things done this semester break. Having it coming to an end soon now, I think I should be rather proud of myself that I actually stuck to my words.

I finished two books! One which I've been reading since even before semester break, but never had enough time to be fully and completely into it because responsibilities and priorities of those times. Another which I've bought along with some others with the book vouchers.



This is one of the most romantic books I've ever read. 

I liked it when I was just halfway through it, that time we still had classes and Felicia saw me reading it. I remember her asking me, “好看吗?” and I said, “好看~” and she was like, “你回答的时候一脸幸福样。” 



The second book.

I've seen this book around bookstores a lot when I picked up some books, but it didn't really appeal to me back then. But this time, upon seeing it so many times, I decided to buy it. I think, in a way, I was meant to buy it and read it now instead of months or years ago. Because if I had read it before this, I think I wouldn't have understood anything said in here. The contents and words wouldn't hit or get to me like it did now. 

I remember starting this book at The Garden's Borders Starbucks, when I was waiting for my mom. I started reading it and in my mind and heart the only way I could react to it was 'WOW', and all I could think of was life. And I was only a few pages into the book then. 

If you asked me right now, this would be the book that I would recommend people to read. I'm not sure if they'd get it, but it doesn't matter, I think. For me, if I don't understand what I read I would read it again and I guess people would do the same? But anyway, check it out if time permits. It's not a very lengthy story nor a very thick book, but there are a lot of things to be learned from here. Genius.


The second thing completed was watching some movies and dramas that I left untouched halfway. 


I think anyone who has watched this badass series would agree with me when I say it's cool as hell.

I'm not finished with it though. I'm only at season 4 out of 5. I'm getting there!

When I finished season 3, I felt like it was a bit too heavy for my happy heart and soul (hahahaha). But I was looking for something to watch, still, and I remembered Wee Chia telling me that there is this drama series that the cast of 琅琊榜 acted in. I didn't really want to start getting hooked and completely obsessed with another drama series, but I had time, I thought, so I checked it out anyway. 


And of course, I got hooked.

42 episodes in 4 days. That's acceptable, right? Yes it is. I've done crazier. Then I asked Felicia to watch it, and told Wee Chia that I really like it. There aren't a lot of friends around me who watch and follow China drama series, so I feel lucky to have two who do. 

When all of us finished 琅琊榜, it was all that we could talk about, and then there was 芈月传, and before that there was 甄嬛传. But the drama that we really couldn't stop thinking or talking about was 琅琊榜 because feels and mindfucks and 胡歌 (hahahaha no la, it's not just 胡歌, it's the whole crew that was so perfectly cast). 

It was during the previous sem break where we went on our PJ one day eating trip, and the three of us were at Texas Chicken talking about 琅琊榜, and then later that evening we weren't finished with our topic so Wee Chia said, “我们要找个地方坐下来慢慢聊琅琊榜了。” AND SO WE DID.

Given that 欢乐颂 has the 琅琊榜原班人马 starring in it, I said to them, “惨咯,现在我们又要找个地方坐下来慢慢聊欢乐颂了。” Hahahaha! #anticipating

But yea, these dramas don't just show you pretty faces, it reflects life as well.


The most important thing that I wanted to do this semester break was to spend more time with my friends and family. There was a period of time before sem break, I think it was during study break, where I feel disconnected with the outside world. That was fine to me because it was just the outside world, right? But I kenot. I feel like I haven't seen my friends in a very long time and I haven't been really around my parents. 

Right after my end of semester exams, I went on the long awaited trip to Penang with my parents, aunt from Australia and my grandmother. I would tell you of the other thing happening back in KL while we were on the trip that caused my mood to swing by the smallest trigger, but, I'd rather not. Hahaha. Even my dad was trying to keep all emotion and thoughts under control, but he did tell me he couldn't really enjoy the trip. I can understand that. No one would be able to enjoy being away from a family member in need. 

But we did a pretty good job, I would say. We were still able to have fun, even if it's not the fullest. 

It was pretty sad that the street arts of Penang are mostly gone.

At night when we were in bed talking:

Me:"Don't you all have anything to say?"
Aunt:"No, you talk la, we listen."
Mom:"What do you want to talk about?"
Me:"I want to talk about boys."
Aunt:"Oh. You have anyone you like?"
Me:"No."
Aunt:"Then talk what?"
Me:"I don't know oh."

Hahahahahaha! #一场没有内容的conversation


Coincidentally, my brother finished his 3 months of internship and would be spending time at home with me. Being the two friendless people who spend most of their times at home doing nothing much, he asked me to play this game with him.


Stressful. As. Fuck.

It's actually just a game of rolling dies, but the problem is you have to get EXACTLY what the cards show. There were also different characters with different skills where you can draw and use, and this monster boss that'd be awaken depending on what you do in the adventure. So if the character you drew was of great help with the adventure cards you drew, great. If not, wait to be screwed. It was basically a game of LUCK, and I don't do so well in games of luck. Hahahahaha! 

Bro: "You are so bad at rolling dies!"

How can a person be bad at rolling dies? Don't you just roll them? Apparently not. Hahahahaha!


You know how it is always said that everything happens for a reason, and sometimes, that bad situations are actually blessings in disguise? Thinking back on it as I write now, I think I can relate. 

So...... One of my family members got ill and was admitted to the hospital, which caused all of my relatives, all of my cousins, everyone, to get together to visit her. Some even traveled miles from a different state to come over. I know, I know, some might say or wonder, why does something have to happen for everyone to realize the importance of togetherness and be appreciative of our loved ones? But there are inevitable things, and since they have already happened, isn't the best thing we can do is to just make the best out of it? There are always things to learn in every situation that life puts us in, and I am grateful that the ill family member of mine is alright now, and that there was something that got my whole big family together. It's better that something happened that got us together instead of tearing us apart, isn't it? Even if it was something not worth celebrating.

So yea, I got to see them instead of only seeing them once a year. 

Having studying Chinese Medicine, their favourite question to ask me were of course:

1. 你会把脉吗?
2. 你会针灸吗?

会.........

Future third-cousin-brother-in-law even voluntarily be my test subject as I "perform" acupuncture in front of the cousins. 

My uncle even came and told me his discomfort and I helped him apply acupuncture.

“看病的快点来排队!” - Aunt 

Hahahahaha! 

Which reminds me of something my friend once said, “你要看病最还趁现在,以后要给钱了。”


A few days ago I went on a trip with those guys. You know. Those guys. 


Neh. These guys.

It's really difficult to tell you what happened during this 2 days 1 night trip to Ipoh with them because half the things cannot be understood unless you were there and the other half were all "what happened here stays here". Hahahaha!

So ya. 

What's important is that we remember the joy and fun and seasons in the sun. 

Also, my driving in the city really varies a whole damn lot from when I drive on the highway. ^^v

Coming back from this trip with these people, and asked about, "how was the trip?", my answer was a bit cheesy and gooey, but it was really what I felt. 

“我很爱他们哦...”

Hahahahaha!

希望这s*hai的光芒永远不会暗淡。



That's all I have to report and record on my semester break. :)
