Some random photos that I took while vlog-ing!

Short Update 120313

My life is getting insane every single day. There are only more and more things for me to add on my to-do list but nothing for me to cross out....I feel like I am working on them forever but they just can't seem to be finished AT ALL!! How sad is that..

Anyway, for the past 2 weeks I had been ranting about the effing hot weather that turned me into frustrated mode everyday all across Facebook and Twitter and now here's the good news >> Autumn is finally here! (that's what my friends told me) And my mood is good again, everyday!

Nothing much happened this week though except for more and more homework!

Wonder where did the QM lecturer go....Lectures were really really boring until I nearly dozed off....Hope he will be back real soon! Ohh....and now I remember there are assignments waiting to be settled ASAP! FML!

Put a bit of makeup to school today cause I thought my face looks pale...if not I wouldn't selca ><

Had an interview for the Overseas Students Ambassador today....I wasn't really nervous because it's a group interview and the interviewers were really really nice. Hope I can get in though, together with Alanis~ *crossing fingers*

Accompanied Terry to buy his new acoustic guitar today, and finally he chose the Epiphone one which cost him $390++! YAY!

I also sent in my hubby Mikey to repair its strings and bridge, he should be home by tomorrow noon! I am really really excited for him to be back. Miss the times when I hugged him to sleep (I literally did that, don't judge!)

And because Terry bought the guitar at such an expensive price, we got to choose 5 guitar picks for free! And I got one too, something new to add to my guitar pick collection~! Gonna show you guys next time, wait till I expand my collection a little bit more!

Gonna reveal a little behind the scenes to you all....Rebecca and I spotted a cute salesman in the guitar shop! Actually Rebecca found him cute once he approached us to give us some advice, but I didn't care much about him because he has a lip ring (I personally find that a tad bit scary)...UNTIL he started playing on Terry's acoustic guitar, OMG....drop dead COOL!!!! And I changed my mind, he IS CUTE! *trying hard to imagine him without that lip ring*

And there's this really cool guitarist in the shop too who talked about Orianthi and PRS Guitars with me! WHEE~~ *hyped hyped* He also performed some guitar solos for me!!! So happy and when the other guy came to ask him "Didn't you charge any tips?" I RAN OUT OF THE DOOR hahahahahaha :p I REALLY LOVE VISITING GUITAR SHOPS! THEY ARE LIKE HEAVEN IN THIS WORLD TO ME!

Anyway, I have to go now, need to read the boring Introductory Financial Accounting textbook again...Have been reading it for the entire week but I can't seem to be able to finish 1 chapter, it is sooooooooo hypnotizing!

Tomorrow I'm gonna have Korean cuisine for dinner with Rebecca and Terry~ So happy~

By the way, I'm thinking to start Vlogging, is that something YAY or NAY? But what should I vlog about??? Any suggestions???

That's all for today CIAO~ Hope you guys have a nice weekend :3 [I can guarantee you mine will definitely suck...but oh well...life goes on...] :/

Some Problem with...LANGUAGES

I feel like as if I haven't been here (Melbourne) for ages but truth is, it's only a few days, I guess? @@ TWO WEEKS.

Ok so, as the title says, I am now having problem with languages.

You guys know how much I love Korea and Koreans, and basically everything related to Korea I LOVE THEM! So here comes the problem, because I love Korea so much, it's one of my biggest dreams to be able to master their language. What I mean by mastering is that I can read, write and even speak in real accurate Korean. So every now and then when I watch a Korean drama series, or even listening to a song, I would, practically attempt to pick up some new words. Therefore, by now, SOMETIMES I am able to understand some people's conversation in Korean already :p

Unfortunately, my University (yes, I'm in Uni now, don't judge me, I know I'm still acting like a kid, but anyway) doesn't have Korean as an independent subject. I was so looking forward to picking up a new language as my breadth subject, which is something that is irrelevant to my majors, BUT THERE'S NO KOREAN! How disastrous~

Truthfully, the world doesn't end there, they have Japanese! Which is the other language that I love apart from Korean. So, now I'm officially taking Level 1 Japanese as the breadth subject for my semester 1.

Today, I had my first Japanese seminar, which is basically like a tutorial class where everyone sits down and listens to the sensei (means teacher in Jap) and also attempts to mimic after her. Funny thing is that, I was so confused. Since I know some Korean words, typically the greeting phrases, during the seminar, whenever the teacher asked something, and if I happen to know that in Korean I would be so tempted to raise up my hand to answer. Perhaps, I was trying to act like a pro, but don't get me wrong, I didn't even raise up, not even a single time, because the answers that I know were in Korean. LOL!

For example, teacher asked us to greet the people on the same table. And I nearly said "annyeonghaseyo!" ><

And when she asked, "If someone said "sumimasen" (sorry in Jap) and you would like to say nevermind, how would you said it?" I nearly told her "kwenchana".

You get me now? My brain is all tangled up! Hopefully I get to overcome this asap, the best is during next week, because we are actually having an oral assessment after a few weeks. I really can't imagine me speaking in Japanese, but I'm really really really looking forward to it :p

Apart from mastering Japanese, I have 2 more 2013 resolutions, which are equally important to me. Alright, eliminate my academic issues, I'm merely talking about language issues AT THIS MOMENT!

Hopefully my Korean language skills can really improve asap because I'm self-learning it because my dream is to save enough money within these 3 years so that after graduating from University, I can go travel in Korea for 2 months on my own!!! I want to experience their local life there! :3 If I don't know the language, it wouldn't be THAT meaningful anymore. If you get what I'm saying :p

Another thing, which is an issue that SUDDENLY became rather crucial to me >>> the ACCENT PROBLEM. I have to admit that my English vocab and grammar is no where near perfection, but I'm thankful at least I still have the ability to write and am able to express myself in words (just like typing this post). THE THING IS...I can't really speak. As in accurate English.

I guess this is the problem that most Malaysian students face. Well, initially I didn't see this as a problem anyway, but then recently, if not mistaken, it was just a few days ago or last week, I suddenly became really annoyed with my own Malaysian accent. The thing is that in school, most people travel in their cliques. It's a norm for Malaysian students to mingle with Malaysian students, you get the idea of what I'm saying, right? That's how I survived last year. Most of my friends are Malaysians and I also have friends from China and Taiwan. And you know what's the consequence of this? After spending 1 year in Australia, my English hasn't improved, not even a freaking 1% instead my Chinese and Cantonese improved a lot. OMG!

Ok so back to the topic of why I suddenly came to realization that my accent sucks?! The other day I attended a Youtubers gathering. Most of them were locals, as in Australian, only one guy from America. Honestly, if you were in my shoes, you might know how I feel. I left my home a thousand miles behind me because I wanted to come and experience different culture, meet different people and most important of all, improve my English, but then what have I achieved? NOTHING! WTF! At that moment, I feel really shameful of myself. Don't get me wrong, it's not that those locals teased me for having a bad accent or whatsoever, is just that I really look down upon myself. I had nearly forgotten what was my main aim to study here. ENGLISH ENGLISH ENGLISH~~ And to me, their accents are just WONDERFUL. I personally love American accent, but Aussie accent is not bad to me too! AND I WANT TO LEARN IT! Gonna say goodbye to my typical Malaysian accent already, next year I don't want people to tell me "You are from Malaysia right?" following by "I can tell because of your accent!" WTF!

If you have been pretty patient and read through every single word of this post, till now you can probably sense that I have a keen interest in languages. Yes. I am. No doubt. That's why I want to improve, who can tell me the MOST EFFICIENT WAY TO IMPROVE MYSELF?

This is my last teenage year already and I truly don't want to waste it like a tap water anymore.

Be it Japanese, Korean or English, I swear I will definitely have you guys settled before I leave Melbourne. The challenge starts now, JYO ZIKZIN!

First Korean Cuisine and #BoJio Gathering

Korean food was never my cup of thing back then, but ever since last December I tried out their cuisine, I fell in love with it.

I had my very first Korean food in Melbourne with my #BoJio members ^^ Actually this is another super postponed blog post, I had totally forgotten about those photos that I took in the restaurant until today I attempted to clear my laptop's memory. And if you are wondering what that hashtag means, I can tell you frankly I don't really know where did it originate from. The literal meaning of it is "NO INVITE" in Hokkien. Can't recall since when we started calling each other "BO JIO" and we later on called ourselves THE BO JIO! >< 4 of us in a group, 3 guys: TJ, Terry and Ga Luoh; I'm the only girl, so I got to be treated well haha :p They are just like my big brothers taking care of the rebellious and naughty little sister :p

Terry asked me last year, "YO BO JIO, you like Korea and Koreans so much, do you like Korean food?"

I said no, because I hadn't had the chance to try it out. So after graduation, Terry invited us out for lunch before we parted for our hometowns. We went out for my very first Korean meal and also our first #BoJio outing :p

NOTE: I didn't gamble AT ALL, NOT EVEN ONCE. It's so NOT my thing. 


#19 I just selca-ed. 


#20 And got warned by a casino staff...*sigh* I knew we weren't suppose to selca in the casino, but I was so bored, I had absolutely nothing to do except for looking at people gamble....

Eventually I pulled them out from there because I wanted to go have ice cream :p


#21 TADAH! My ice cream :3

#27 HAHAHAHA! Don't misunderstand, me and him are just buddies, just that we both got high marks in our drama exams, which made us good actor and actress. We wanted to take this photo on purpose because people often thought that we were dating and we wanted to prove them "RIGHT" hahahaha >< truth is HELL NO!

So this was how the #BoJio gathering went...EAT EAT EAT AND EAT! 
\
Still remember that time I got to know them because we were in the same History of Ideas lecture. How we came to know each other and eventually forming the "club" I really can't remember anymore, but I guess, most importantly, it's the friendship that matters. Now that we are now in different streams already, it's impossible for the 4 of us to attend the same lecture already, that's why I'm looking forward to the next #BoJio gathering. Terry promised to buy me Korean food again for me belated 19 birthday haha :p *hyped*
