optimistic vs pessimistic

all my life, i must admit that i have never met someone as optimistic as myself...yes han...i agree...but have you ever met someone totally on d other end? someone sooooo negative, that each and everyday without fail, she starts it with a sigh, and says that she will die because she's not doing well enough in d course...funny thing about life...ive not only met this girl, this total opposite, but we sit together in class everytime, and i adore her...hehe...sometimes of course it annoys me to d core just listening to her whine about life, but i think its actually refreshing to have someone to argue with everyday, and somehow understanding each others traits as we are...

she whines about how she hates working in a group (though she used to be a project manager herself), she whines about how inefficient d transportation is here in liverpool on saturdays...she complains about d coffee...she complains about d lecturers...n d list goes on and on...

at a ripened age as we are, i dont believe that anyone could actually change her...ive asked her before if she's read 'The Secret' at which she paused, made a face...and started whining about something else...amazing...though i believe it may not be of good influence to me, (or good, coz at least i would step out of d bubble once in a while) i think i'd ride along...see how far things go...i guess i could use a punch in d face once in a while...herself, likewise :)

fool

after an 8-hour class on a saturday, it finally got to me how idiotic i was for not leaving d bloody company sooner...please God, bless me with a better job soon...

fab feb

havent written in a while..been extra busy traveling after the finals...lets see..

2 days after finals, i shot off to london to see lil sis...she came all 11,000km to see me in UK...i was so excited to see family after not having to for about 5 months now...we stayed in london for 4 days in malaysian hall...d place was OK, comfy bed and clean sheets and teh tarik at your disposal till 10pm...felt like i was partly in malaysia...we went around, up to camden, where we both loved coz its soo crafty there...no more punks walking around tho, unfortunately, but d arts, tattoos and rings were still there...and many many halal places including a halal food court at d stables market...amazing rite...

d end of d week, we did liverpool, starting with d university, d docks, d churches and finally china town...we even covered cheshire oaks for some branded stuff shopping (i love gap!) and carboot sunday...

class started, so na was home bound for about 2 days, enjoying sung kyun kwan and UK food we bought at asda...then we shot off to manchester for a day tour on their free metroshuttle all over d city (i love freebies) and off on train to old trafford...d following day we rested bit, woke up late, and went off to anfield to see where LFC play...its just about 30min bus ride from d city, so we covered bit more of what was left of liverpool dat day...

saturday was off to lake district...it was amazing...sure is a great honeymoon destination...i wish it could be one of mine one day...and it was really na's day, when it started snowing right when we got off d train from liverpool...we enjoyed d cruise to brockhole and ambleside and back to bowness...and lake district cheese...yummm...we were dead tired when we arrived home, but it was a trip to remember...

sunday was na's last day...we had lunch at my fav restaurant; quick chef, near d uni...where they serve d most amazing calzone...and we walked it off to d city for one last time for na...

next day, we woke up at 3, got onto d 4.30 bus to manchester and off na went to london and to malaysia...i was pretty sad when i came back n saw her empty bed...just like when mak left...

dat thursday, me n ada went off on a bus to amsterdam! pretty awesome trip...d organiserswe drove to dover, d bus hopped onto d ferry, and hopped off at calais, belgium...d trip from liverpool to amsterdam took about 14 hours...its still ok...i guess if you've been through a 12-hour trip in myanmar, you can go for anything and still feels fine...hehe...d hotel was pretty decent, though staying with guys was kinda embarassing, but d guys proved to be gentlemen...

d whole trip crew however, came all d way to amsterdam not to travel, unfortunately, but to partayyyy....so we were more or less left to ourselves to go around and enjoy d city...while we were sightseeing, they were sleeping, and while they were partying, we were sleeping...hehe...oo well...anyway, i think amsterdam is gorgeous...i love d houses...each one of them are so articulately made...d canals were frozen and absolutely beautiful...red light district was amazing at night...much much better than pat pong thailand...european girls vs thai trans...if u know what i mean...sex museum was just OK...was like walking into penthouse magazine..haha...nothing much there...no wonder d entrance fee is cheap...we went around everywhere with our rented bikes...so cheap n its really safe to cycle here, coz there are even traffic lights for your cycles...there are many indonesian restaurants around, but we didn't have a chance of eating at one...but we tried everything dutch though..well almost everything...met up some indonesian pak around, who were excited to talk to us in indon...comel...

we arrived back in liverpool at midnite on sunday (monday), i had class in d wee early morning, then in d afternoon shot off to manchester for petronas...and came back rite after its over...i had class on tuesday and ever since...no classes till this saturday...woohoo...so its all rest rest recuperate...next crazy stunt is easter!
