A sojourn to the Roti Canai store.

31/12/2005

A sojourn to the Roti Canai store.

This morning I was walking down to get breakfast from the Indian tea store at the foot of the hill where my school was. I took out my Avon umbrella (to shield me from the sun. It was SUNNY!!) and my clutch bag on my left. I was walking on the left of the road going down the hill.

All of a sudden, this rusty red jalopy (with a rather bed-raggled) looking man who was driving past down the hill saw me walking and decided to slow down the car.

He opened the door and asked me if I wanted a ride down, so I said I was only walking down to the foot of the hill.

So he left.

I saw him again at the foot of the hill. He had gone to the same Indian tea-store where I was going to get my breakfast.

He told me that I was right to have my clutch bag on my left as there were many cases of snatch thieves on passing motorbikes.

I listened for a while and then went to order my breakfast from the cook.

Whilst waiting for my order to be ready, the man, Francis (his name) said he was driving to town, and then he asked if I wanted a ride down town. I declined saying that I was walking back to work.

Then he told me that he was doing construction work, and wrote down his phone number on this chit which he passed to me. I took it.

Later when my dad came to the office, I passed the number to him, [minus the rest of the details here], telling him that some fella who did construction work had given it to me.

My question now is, what would you have done, if the same thing happened to you, were you a single Asian female walking down the hill like me?

A Fruitful Wednesday.

29/12/2005

A Fruitful Wednesday.

Nopz. I didn't manage to spend any time reading my texts and stuff...*heh*

Well, I had a long and fruitful day today. I spent about an hour and more preparing the Practical LIfe & Sensorial hand outs for the teachers last night. It helped coz there would have been a lot of things I would have missed out if I didn't. Anyway, it gave me a framework to work on, albeit a condensed one though.

I spent about 2 hours plus (9-11am) just elaborating some of the principles behind the Montessori concepts to the teachers. *hmm*. Not much time anyway, considering I took a year's worth of time just to learn up the whole diploma course!!

After that we took an hour to clear up the school for our orientation day tomorrow. Yup, the little kiddies are coming in tomorrow!! :-)

Anyway, ZH came to pick me up for lunch. We both ordered kway teow for lunch. ZH said the kway teow was *yummy!!* :-)

I had my FINAL organ class at 2pm. FINAL!!!

After which, ZH wanted to watch Ru Guo Ai, but it turns out the next screening was at 7pm at The Mines, so we decided not to. In the end, we ended up going back to ZH's place to play Quartet and Classical Snap card games.
Really interesting games, coz we are supposed to read the details on the card and memorize all these information about the musicians and the name of the composers, and if we can remember the composer's name, our turn would be forfeited.

Anyway, after which we picked Kimmy up for dinner at Kuchai's and she had chicken rice! (Accordingly, according to what I hear, was among her favourite!). ZH dropped me off at my car, and Kimmy & I went shopping at Sentral. Her mom had texted her to go home early, but in the end we could not go to the night market as it started to pour.

Uncle Khoo asked Kimmy what she had for dinner, and she said chicken rice.
Ethan quipped that she liked to eat it a lot! I asked him how he knew, and he said " I over hear things".

*Ahhh* I see, nodding with understanding & enlightenment.....

Kimmy and her mom had gone shopping at Megamall to get this MP4 player...woah....new stuff.

Everyone was rummaging through old photographs. Kimmy found this autograph book and was going through it when she found an old love letter from Ronnie to Winnie....

Kimmy started reading those, and Ethan joined in and they started roaring in laughter.......I was actually taking a nap there, but when she started reading it, I couldn't stop laughing either, coz it sounded JUST SO FUNNNY!!

excerpts of the letter......

"Do you know it feels to be in love? It just feels so great to be in love and how I am in love with you...*blah blah blah*. Am coming back on Saturday, but I want to see you....*blah blah blah*..
It feels so great to be just in love....do you know how it just feels to be so in love with you
*to which an exasperated Kimmy said, didn't he already just said that he IS In LOVE??* Wahahahahah*....

*Ha ha ha ha* to which I laughed too coz they kept laughing and had been laughing and laughing and laughing, and I said, I know that I know for sure my dad had written plenty of those to my mom, and I had found them when I was very young as well..... Winnie decided to take it back and put on her hubby's pillow for her husband to read (so he can puke later at what he wrote in his younger days....!!! ) Hahahahhaah

Do people actually still write love letters these days? Hmmmm.....I think that they actually do....Ha haha. I have received some myself too. Somewhere in my room...too lazy to look...

Then they started making fun of this young man on a skateboard (on a photo album dated 1985), to which Kimmy said "this is Dee's future husband, he must be almost 50 years old now coz the photo album is made in before 1987 and must be very old and wrinkly"

and Ethan and Kimmy started cracking some jokes about my future husband's name and started laughing all over again to every of my cousins who came into the roommmmm...

* I just slept under the pillow and pretended I didn't hear any of that....and started to SNORE*

Before they left anyway, I had a conversation with Winnie about the education system in NZ. It was most enlightening.....

Faith is?

27/12/2005

Faith is?

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, and certain of what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1.

Now, even when I sit in for service on Sunday, I don't actually pay attention all the time...I fiddle a lot, and I am not the type who can sit still and listen to a sermon/lecture/ (or any one other than me) talk for an hour (regardless of whether it is in college or at church).

I was fiddling through the bible rather than paying attention. The preacher was talking about Mary's faith when the angel spoke to her...(which I totally felt had no connection with me in anyway...)
Yes, I was kind of sulking after my loss of the camera.

So, I was quite suprised when the particular verse just stood out to me.
"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, and certain of what we do not see" on the powerpoint screen.

(yes, sometimes the preacher use visuals for those who have hard of hearing people like me!) :-P

I don't know what it meant, but it brought comfort to me, so I copied the verse into my handphone. I am still waiting for something to happen (which I do not know IS what?, but I am going to just go around and continue my hunt for the camera in the meantime).

Which is the reason why I have to read the bible tonight. I realise that I have not been praying for my needs so much these days....

Camera hunting at Endah Parade.....

Camera hunting at Endah Parade.....

I really went to bed after getting offline from MSN with PG last night.

Anyway, went back for work today. There was a meeting and all the teachers came from all the schools. Discussed what to do for the orientation this coming week. Yup, school is starting soon. Have to read up on my Montessori texts tonight, as I have to present it to the teachers and staff tomorrow. Simple Practical Life & Sensorial training materials..

Supposed to meet PG to go hunting for the camera on Thursday, but he could not make it then, so we had to do it today instead. We went to Endah Parade and went to Mc'D's for lunch. Ai Ling called halfway. She was so surprised that I was nearby, and promptly came after having her lunch. We went around to the two camera shops nearby.

Two shops were selling the Casio Exilim 6.0.

At both stores, the Casio ExiLim retails at RM999. At one store, it had the package of the tripod, and the blardy VIP card. (which I don't need!!), and an SD 128mb storage. I just want a higher storage 500++SD card. (like my previous SD card)! Another sells it, but without anything that comes with it, but the price was negotiable....(heh). I should think the price would be negotiable at both stores (if I dont want any of the *extras*)....

Well, I like it as it has the backlight for the screen, plus anti-shake for clearer pictures, and shutter speed seems faster than the Ricoh one. Well, Albert, any advice?? I haven't decided on what to get yet though....

PG said to go to Pyramid to check it out *right*. You can drive there neh, coz I wont!!

And nopz, I won't be paying it on instalment, but I HAVE TO and AM saving up to get it instead. I don't believe in being part of the statistic of a Debt Society, which a lot of people pay using credit card. As I have said, saving up is better, coz you'll pay more on the interest rates....*nah*.

Anyway, this is the email I got from Gloria in regard to my USQ application, in case anyone keeps asking!!!

"Dear Gloria, Thank you for your email. We are waiting for a CRICOS Code to be confirmed so it may be early next year when we can get the letter to you. You have a lovely day...Rgds Lorene"
I finally managed to eat Tong Yuen!! Went with PG to Esquire, but there was no Tong Yuen sold anymore, so we went to this store at the 2nd floor, (just in front of the lift near the computer games shop) that sells
Tong Yuen with Soya Bean.... Healthy??
It retails about RM2.80 or less per bowl for four pieces. Yes I am finally quenched of my wanting to eat Tong Yuen!!! *Yum Yum*


Stuff I have to do tonight:
One hour organ practice.(yup, got my final organ lesson tomorrow!)
One hour Montessori readings. (going through the files).
One hour Bible reading. (spiritual food, or so, shall I say?).

Tomorrow evening:
One hour Play Pedagogy readings.(assignment due soon!)
One hour Sociology readings. (assignment due soon!)
One hour Bible reading. (more spiritual food?)
Prepare my article for infant mag in town. Something about brain development (blah blah blah).
(yup....the editor has extended one week for my behalf, at least till next week. Need to do research what!).

Which reminds me, I have to get a hardcopy organiser from my dad soon.

Boxing Day at Cosmo's World Theme Park.

Boxing Day at Cosmo's World Theme Park.

Just came back from Times Square. Took my nieces, Kimmy and Michelle to the Cosmo's World Theme Park. My cousin, Kim also came along with Ethan and Vincent. Kimmy & Michelle's parents came, but they left halfway for the kids to join us.

Kim went back with Vincent coz he was tired, but Ethan joined us for the rides. Vincent's 5, Ethan's only 7, Kimmy 12, and Michelle 10.

I have been hearing them speak in their kiwi accent the entire afternoon, and at least till Jan 6th, when they leave the country. Haha, Ethan is American, but he has a strong grasp of the Mandarin language, whereas Kimmy & Michelle only conversational cantonese.

They're going to get their photo studios taken tomorrow at this photo studio near Kuchai. Pretty shoddy work, in my opinion anyway. (i meant the studio).

Ai Ling & Yi Ling were at the arcade playing some Para-Para Sakura dance machine. They gave me their christmas prezzies. Ok, I had no time to go shopping the past one week, so I only managed to get it today.

Also, the other thing I realised is that Christmas is getting commerciallised. But there really is not much we can do about it....when people give us gifts, we feel that it is proper to recipocrate....*sigh*...

A bad time for the chinese (in their mid 20s) when all their friends are getting married in the month of Nov & Dec, and every one is going broke coz of that, not to mention Christmas on top of it!! *hmmmmm*

Well, just remember to ummmm....save money next year (at least for the next 5 years) coz almost everyone will be getting married, and to get christmas gifts on top of it.

Yesterday, a friend of mine from Connexions got her handbag ripped. And on Christmas Day itself. Well, obviously she was feeling sad. Jess, who was supposed to come over to my house, had to keep her company. They had gone to the police station to report the loss.

(now, someone else actually knows how it feels to have your camera lost?).

HELP. I LOST My Ricoh Camera!!

25/12/2005

HELP. I LOST My Ricoh Camera!!

I lost my Ricoh camera at Nando's OUG today after lunch time. Yes, the RM777 Ricoh camera one which I bought at Amcorp Mall, (right around Hari Raya time) along with a 500++ Mbyte SD card and 2 rechargeable batteries. The SD card already costs more than RM200 if bought separately....
* I AM quite annoyed*.

I just hope that someone could find a way of returning the camera to me..*but*...I mean, if the people wanted to return it to me, they would have left it at the Nando's counter when I went back to get it then. Or if the staff at Nando's. You just can't tell people's heart these days.

Just to tell you, I won't be having pictures for the next couple of days. (or however long it may take.....)
Don't really feel like blogging my thoughts tonight, although the remainder of my day was pretty good.

I woke up at 6.30am. Called Jess. I called her another 2 times, and she picked up on the 3rd time!
Went to the hall at 6.45am to complain to my dad about it, (coz I forgot to include something in my Assigment). He said the Spirit of the Lord must have woken me up to remind me about it!*hmm*

Anyway, I picked Jess up at about 9am, so that I can drive to Summit. We had breakfast, she did her shopping there and I went to get my silver marker exchanged at Popular.

I had Chicken for breakfast, lunch, and dinner today.

Steamed chicken rice in the morning.

Nando's Mild Perry-Perry Chicken at lunch.
Chicken (and beef) Satay in Kajang for dinner.
Me up with PG for lunch at Chicken's Nando OUG. Realised I forgot about the cam and drove back there to get it. It WAS MISSING!!

Waited in front of FGA for the rest of the group to leave for Bagan Lalang. There IS actually a beach there, but not really for swimming. The water's a bit dirty.

I was supposed to follow Irene in her Avanza, but they decided to put me in Mel's car instead. It's always fun sitting in Mel's car. *heh*. There is always interesting conversation that happens.

Anyway, Mel got my gift for gift exchange earlier after dinner. He said it was most practical.....Seriously, sometimes when girls go gift-buying, they have to think of whether it is practical for the guys as well. The other guys were most impressed!. ;-)

*you can try to figure out what it was I bought for the gift exchange* ;-)

I got this tealight candle table decoration for gift exchange. *Hmmmm...

Anyway, if you do get me a gift, make sure its something practical, and I won't put it in the shelf and forget for the 12 months. Thank You Very Much....

To the rest, Have a Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

My drink upgrade at A & W

21/12/2005

My drink upgrade at A & W

18:31 hours:

My computer is giving me problems. Well, the one (outside in the "family hall" is.) It konks out about every half an hour or an hour and I have to restart...(but it's not as bad as the one in my room!).

Anyway, I was at this commercial pizzateria earlier with a friend, and the place has an afternoon menu, which includes a soda in their set meals. Since I was not feeling too well then, my friend ordered first.

I took my time going through the menu, and finally decided on a cappucino frappe.
Technically, the frappe is considered an a la carte order, which should be charged separately, about RM5 (whipped cream is charged an extra RM1).

When the bill came, surprisingly the frappe was charged as an upgrade from the soda (which is RM3.50), and it didn't include the extra charge of RM1 (for whipped cream)..

*Hmmmm*

We deduced it was because I ordered late, and if I had ordered earlier together, they probably would not have served the soda, but just only had given us the frappe (because it was supposed to be an UPGRADE?).
Then again, this is only possible in sit-down diners, as in places like McD's where it's ordered and paid straight at the counter, you can't do that. Ha ha ha ha...

(unless they make my friend puke the soda out, which I doubt they will...haha. Otherwise, if they insist, just pay the difference for the drink lor.)

20:46 hours:

I accidentally deleted an MP3 file off my bro's player, so I had to go around asking for the file. [before he starts making noise!] GrayFox has been kind enough to forward the files by MSN... and Irene (Connexions) has offered to upload it to her server. *Thanks!*

Right...Thank the Lord for *techie* people.....(who listen to MP3)...

Counting the days to Christmas...

19/12/2005

Counting the days to Christmas...

17th Dec: Saturday

Am going to start with my Christmas card writing and prezzie browsing & shopping like for the next 2 days (before the next assignment starts on with full *pow*!)

My wishlist....for this year, please refer to this!

Ok, going to go Ka-Ra-Ok-ing with Zen now. Ciao!

Click here to go to Dannie's site about our time at the KARAOKE.

Very much later ...in the morning...

Dec 18th: Morning.... Sunday

Arrgggghh...*nevermind* that I just remembered about the Youth Christmas presentation was today. Or yesterday night for that matter......*patutlah semua orang sibuk ni*..

So fine. I am going for the one on 23rd.
It's Jess's birthday as well. (I just remembered) As well as Laynie's as well!! Hmmmm.

Joining the Connections for Christmas on the 24th.

And going for my own Church Service on the morning of 25th.
If you want to join me, (please text me earlier in advance to notify me!!)

Hmmmm....turns out I might join the Combined YAF at Sunway today..*blarDy*
Since Bell is also joining them for bowling and practically everyone will be there. Makes more *sense* ler.

(23:10 hours)

I forgot to add that when I was singing at the Karaoke yesterday, I chose mostly 60s & 70s songs...
"Born Free", Beautiful Sunday, Mandy (and forgot the rest liao) to which someone said this sounded like an opera session..wakakakakkakakakakaka.

Just checked my results....I got a B for Care & Education Settings!!! *Wheeeee!!*

Hmmm...still crossing my fingers for Cross-Cultural Education....I need 4.5 more out of 45 marks to pass...but HECK. I am not aiming Just To Pass ler.... my first two assignments were pretty Good......but the third one was a KILLER. Alice said she took two days to do it. I was cracking my head for one week just to do the lesson plans..*sigh*. Right, and would remember, it was the week of my birthday when I had to finish that bloody assignment.

I'm falling asleep just trying to read my Play text. First assignment on Play due this coming Friday, 5pm. After that, I am heading down to FGA for their Christma Youth Performance (WHO WANTS TO COME???) with the other members of the Connections.

Ok. Ok. I went to Sunway Pyramid today. There was a Combined YAF there ler....[so almost 20 ppl turned up ler]. Guess who I bumped into....*Right* I bet he will be reading my blog here...Shyan (of all people). A friend of Stephanie, who is a friend of U Joe.

*amazingly small world* For about half an hour, I was wondering who he was. Kathleen was wondering how come I was talking (like I knew him, but I just couldn't remember from where...)

David Low asked how come I was MIA from the meetings in ages (well, obviously, since I am no longer in Ruggeds). * I thought he was just so cute asking that ..haha*

I even thought Kimmy & Alvin (Pat's bro) looked almost alike.... [having not been formally introduced to him until then] *so cute*!! They just looked at each other.....and gave each other that look. *lolz*.Well, that's coz they were sitting right beside each other, and they had almost the same eyes!!!

Anyway, we went to Hartz Chicken Buffet for lunch. The chili crispy chicken is good. Very good. I shouldn't have taken the normal fried chicken. Too wet for my taste.

Amos had Ice Lemon Tea with Ice-Cream!

Ha. I beat him to it with my own concoctions. Coffee with Ice-Cream. Very mocha indeed.

papayaice2

Of course, Kath also had her own creation. PAPAYA ICE-CREAM.

Anyway, I told my parents about it over dinner time, and they asked why didn't I drag my brother along *knowing their minds ler*. To which I said, 'it was a last minute decision".

Oh yeah. Liverpool lost the game. What time did it start? Oh, the 6.45pm one. Some FIFA Japan Toyota Cup. My bro said,
nevermind, they are still in second placing. No biggie.

I bet he's watching the Chelsea game now. *opens door to hear *. [yup. He IS!!] Oh, Shyan is also a Chelsea fan.

I did mention to Kien (he is a Liverpool fan) I bought this Liverpool bandanna. He was so excited & asked me when I was going to wear it. I said it is for Christmas ler. [Kien has a Liverpool jersey with HIS NAME on it!] and to which he said, if I changed my mind about the person I am giving it to, he wants FIRST nibs to it....

* He He He He He He.....*

*well, we'll see what happens ;-)

Anyway, went with Bell to the pharmacy. I found what I needed there [for the gift exchange anyway]!
Then Kath.Wong joined us after that with the others.

*Right* She FFK me on Tuesday... *makes face*. Anyway, we managed to go around (well, I did) the stores so I can get some ideas for my card making.
She said I "very sara diri" lar...(yeah, oh yeah. every thing want to make myself lor!)..... I had every tom-dick-and-harry idea that kept popping into my head with every new Christmas merchandise I saw at Memory Lane. hehehe.

Tuesday 20th Dec: 12:15 hours.

Just came back from meeting up with Chee Ming at IOI Mall.
Well, Chee Ming, if you are reading this, *waves hi!!*

He gave me this big family packet of Reese's chocolate cups with peanut butter stuffing.....*Thanks*.
We had a drink at Starbucks and took some pix. He's actually a friend of Fui Ken, and I have never been able to meet up with him each time he came down to KL from The States. Yup, both Fui Ken & Chee Ming are in the Buffalo state, famous for their Buffalo Wings.

Their buffalo has wings, just as when pigs can fly, I have a tail on my ass.

We saw this Metallic Grey Sports car parking illegally in the Handicapped parking bay in front of Jusco.
carhandicapped2

Do you want the car plate number?

Anyway, met up with PG for dinner last night. Actually, I didn't expect to see him for another two months (or longer)....which whereby, I would have flown away already anyway....well, it's not like he misses my scintillating company anyway. :-) He's got WarCraft, Liverpool, work & futsal to keep him occupied almost on a daily basis....

We walked around Parkson OUG looking at the deco & stuff. I found Tracing Paper (RM4.20) on the 3rd Floor.

The Men's Department is the best place where the salesmen will be servicing Men customers. That is also the best place (in the mall) for ladies to chat the salesmen up. I don't think just because a guy & girl walk together, the salesmen will think they are both a couple.

*Either ways, the salesmen will definitely be chatting the girl up, (she is in Men's Dept anyway!)*

Obviously, if the couple is holding hands and all mushy together, that is a different story altogether. Otherwise, well, there is no obligation between the two anyway.

Well, that is HOW guys would think anyway, isn't it?

"my mind is a swirling miasma of scintilitating thoughts and turgid ideas"

Anyway, just got my results from Gloria through email. I got 87 marks for Music & Movement!! Ok, better than I hoped for!!! * YeS!!!*

Photos: Dr. Massimo gelato.

Photos: Dr. Massimo gelato.

Today, at about noon time, Jaq and I headed down to the manufacturing plant of this gelato, located near the PWTC. The genius behind it, Dr. Massimo, greeted Jaq and I in his office, giving us a tour of his humble abode where his masterpiece concoctions of sorbetto, gelato (and even soya based gelato!) was created.

theman
Dr.Massimo

There were so many machines......(and of course) the pasteurizing machine ( which is essential to be found) in every dairy/ ice-cream/ *etc, etc, etc* gelataria. There were quite a lot of procedures to making gelato as well as sorbetto, that it took me a while (who does not know anything about COOKING! at all) to get it.

We were also shown how his sorbetto was created, using the bare ingredients of just fresh fruit, sugar, water, and lemon juice, blending it and finally freezing it.We saw how chocolate, oreo gelato and mango sorbet was made.

Now, if you are wondering, sorbetto is not ice-cream, as it does not have cream in it. Whereas, gelato, is ice-cream, made of milk, sugar, natural products and other other main ingredients...

By lunch time... *stomach gets rumbling*

Guess who volunteered to cook us pasta??

..

..
..
..
..
..
pesto

*BURP!*
Definitely not me. I can't cook to save my life.
For dessert ...guess what??
Gelato of course.
Oreo and vanilla gelato.
After lunch, we stayed a while to talk some more, and left the place there after.

takeaway
A takeaway gift to us for being such good listeners and taking time out to visit him.... *Mango Sorbet*enjoy

Later at home.............Yummmmmy........ *you watering yet???*

Harry Potter.

Harry Potter.

Dec 7th:
A friend of mine was telling me today that after hearing my reviews of Harry Potter, they didn't want to watch it. Instead, they are waiting for Narnia instead.....*wooooh*

That's the power of.....COMPLAINTS?

I paid my revenge against the director of Harry Potter....LESS SALE of Tickets for YOU! *Hah!*


Nov 29th:
Was chatting online earlier, and I just found out that an old friend, Chen is getting engaged?

*Woah*. I am begining to fell OLD all of a sudden liao.....

Anyway, had dim sum on Sunday for lunch. Courtesy of Kishore...oh well, he spent me that for my birthday ler. Hehe. It's his first at trying out Dim Sum. He couldn't handle the chopsticks, but I said he could use his fingers!

We were trying to decide if to watch Harry Potter, and yes, we DID (Like Finally!!)

*OH MY GAWD!**

HOW COULD the Director delete practically half the book from it?? I am SO ANNOYED.

I was so waiting (for 4 years!!) to see how Hermione would turn out like, but the bloody director practically cut up half the related the scenes, the Yule Ball just had no meaning to it!! *DAMN*
I don't want to talk about it, but I think the director could have at least be a bit more sensitive...*SIGH*.

Insensitive Director!!

Anyway, I decided to have Bird Nest, being it cooling and all..

A guy friend of mine gave it to me.












First you soak it in warm water for half an hour. (to let the saliva/gum/whatever dissolve).

















Then boil it in a pot (steaming that is). Add rock sugar. Boil for TWO BLOODY hours!















Finally it's ready! Yummmy!!!

















Bon apetit!!

Incompetent staff working at SEGI college.

Incompetent staff working at SEGI college.

Oh My Gawd.

I emailed Gloria last night and got my answer this morning.

Can you believe what she just said?

She totally forgot all about communicating with the university about my transfer over there..

What has that woman being doing, when I am waiting over here?????

It has been over one month, and now she tells me that she FORGOT???? HELLLOOOOO?????
Is there even enough time for me to get my visa NOW???

*Knocks head against the wall*

I am so going to start hurling.

That is what you get for incompetent staff working in an educational institute.

Jemima J: An inspiration.

Jemima J: An inspiration.

If you have noticed properly, the ID Okcounter.com icon seems not to be functioning. This seems to be the same with the ones by the same server in other blogs (on XiaXue's as well), so I can't really check my site stats except for the one in blue by StatCounter. *Oh well*.

Well, shut up. I have a right to be depressed as well. I am only human.
I sent an SOS to Maddie and Jess. Hmmm. I wonder what is going on?

Anyway, yesterday, (this morning to be exact), I finished reading Jane Green's Jemima J.
I like British writings. American movies are good, but the British books are ones I best like.

Anyway. The American writings pretty much suck (the ones that I have read so far anyway).

I loved the Shopaholic series, Harry Potter series, and of course, those by Jane Austen. Heheh.
I say that, as there are many American books I have read, (with nice packaging and all), but I just couldn't get along with the way it is written (the modern ones, so far anyway)....

I find Jemima J to be, pretty inspirational. Although I don't agree with some of the things she did, nonetheless, she makes me feel inspired to change. For the better. Like a Queen.

It would be great if the book could be turned into a movie. But the American characters in the book are not portrayed in such a good light, so it may not be taken too well with the Americans. Anyway, it may give Bridget Jones a run for its money.

(but I doubt the Americans would like it as much, lest an American plays it (as usual, of course)? LoLz).
