job experience ( or lack thereof )

well, here I am at my first ever job - well, technically I'm interning, well it's actually called Vacation Training but you get the flow. 

It's my second day at work and I'm bored. I have not been assigned to a task as yet and I feel like going up to somebody and asking to help them. Should I? but we were told to wait and I'm getting really bored. And I don't want to go on facebook cause that might be a little rude :/

So, here I am attending to my abandoned blog.
A lot has happened since my last update.
but I'll leave that for another blog.

Going back to my job, well there's really nothing much to be said about it except... I'm still waiting and I'm pretty sure a week from now I'll be regretting saying all this but yeah...

I've got half an hour till work ends and yeah...
You can definitely tell I'm bored,right?
Cause I can!

I want to help out but am afraid so what can I do? NOTHING!
well, I'm going to try do something.
till later...

Harimau Malaya

I managed to go back home and watch the Tiger's in action. And even though we lost to Singapore (our arch rivals in everything) we played a good game and we are definitely rising from the ashes. Saying that itself, makes me proud to call myself a Malaysian and support our national football team.
Being in the crowd with 87,000 people all with one common goal (minus the odd 200 Singaporeans) felt amazing.
We were all there ignoring race, religion, gender to support Harimau Malaya. Our voices were sychronized in harmony as we cheered and cheered on our young players. There were moments which brought us to our feets, there were the nail bitting moments and in the end there was the long moment of sadness. Yes, we were disappointed but not in our players just the general disappointment when one loses something, I would say.

The crowd at Stadium Bukit Jalil

Our players in the Blue jerseys :)

We are all still behind this team of Harimau's as they march forward to face more challenges and as they slowly but surely rise up the ladder of success. We were once Asia's best and I believe we are on the right part to achieve that same glory again. This is one circumstance where history should repeat itself. As I type this sitting thousands of miles away from home, I wish the Harimau's all the best in the next few games as they take on Japan and other countries to qualify for the Olympics. I hate to quote Justin Bieber here but "Never Say Never". With the right amount of determination and hardwork, we may just see our national team on the London pitch. And that will be a moment that will go down in the history books.

Speaking of another Harimau Malaya, our national and world No.1 badminton player, Lee Chong Wei. He is definitely at the peak of his game and I truely hope it lasts for the Olympics. He is one of our only hopes for that prized gold medal.
The one, the only LEE CHONG WEI!

And yes, I did stream it online as I watched him fight hard against Lin Dan for the coveted World Badminton Championship title. He may have lost, yet again and cockily enough Lin Dan may have ripped off his shirt again but then, you can't win everything in life and to Datuk Lee Chong Wei I want to say CONGRATULATIONS for all the tremendous achievement you have done. Thank you for flying the Malaysian flag high and hopefully next year it will be you who humbly defeats an arrogrant Lin Dan for the gold medal at the Olympics!

Also, to Nicol David, girl, my mother wants you as a daughter. You are a true role model and it's a shame squash isn't as famous as tennis. Nevertheless, you are awesome at what you do with an incredible winning streak that makes everybody else envy you. Keep up the good work, Datuk and hopefully I'll see you in action LIVE one day.
Nicol David in action.

In the end, I just want to say
MALAYSIA BOLEH! now and forever :)

Story of my life,eh?

My fingers are really itchy. I want to do something but I don't know what. I know I should be studying now but I can't be bothered. I want to do something interest but can't find anything interesting to do.
I actually would spend my time watching YouTube videos but then my internet megabytes would be eaten like crazy and then I've got to go spend money on buying more. I've had my fair share of videos for today, I reckon so here I am updating my blog.

Well, what has happened in my life that's super interesting or exciting? WELL...



Yes, that's right. That's how boring my life is. I've been super busy with university lately. So many assignments, it's crazy and here I thought I could actually get a job this semester. There goes my dream to earn extra pocket money :( 
Besides assignments, I've also decided being the smart-ass I am at times, to join a law competition.
It was well...
a) an experience
b) still going on
c) We're hoping to win at least one round ;)

Well, so I mooted for the first time ever in my life and it was fun. Literally, seconds before walking up to the lantern, I felt my heart pumping blood at like gazillion tonnes per second and I could feel it wanting to jump out of my rib cage. But as soon as I stood at the lantern, addressed the court and started my submission - it all went a way and I zoned all my energy into my speech. Now, that my turn is over, it was fun looking back. I expected to cry at the first question the judge threw at me, but I didn't and I felt like I handled myself very well. I think and even the judges said I did pretty well. So, YAY ME!

Speaking of YAY ME, is it true that Brenda Song is pregnant with Trace Cyrus kid? WTH? WTF? I never curse but this might deserve it. Like WHAT?! And of all people with him? 
Seriously, there goes my childhood. 

Well, I'm signing off now...

never forget to smile people, I'm dead serious. Teehee!

They Make Me Wanna...

Oh, yes they definitely make me so many things but mostly just SMILE at the mere mention of their name, they've cast a spell on me and have definitly got me hooked just like their millions of their other fans. It's so sad that they're not famous back home or even here. I wish they were. But I'm slowly but surely turning my friends into JLSters, I'm very proud of my accomplishments there. teehee.

So, watching their new video over & over again, which has me hooked mainly because of Aston shirtlessness, I wanted to relish at their first attempts of making it big, yes their X-factor audition and boy, they've come along way. And for your pleasure & also in the hope that I'll change you into a JLSter, here is that video of them way back then - which was like only 3 years ago, but they all look so much younger for some reason. Fame has somehow aged them but they still look SO FIT so who cares?!

LOLing at their introduction and their reactions when Simon says that was terrific....

Oh, boys even back then they kinda saw the stars that you'll could be and you proved them right. I feel so proud, it's so weird considering back then I didn't even now they existed. But now, they're all I talk about. Weird.

Speaking of now, here's their latest NO.1 single, SHE MAKES ME WANNA!!!

How awesome is the video? VERY>>>

So, yes JLS have achieved greatness and have come a long way and now if only they decide to do a world tour so I can watch them live, it would be awesome.
So, JLS if by any chance you are reading this, please please do a world tour or at least tour Asia or Australia or both would be great. Thank you xx :)

Also, apparently TW b*tched about JLS calling them light drinkers ( I'd take that as a compliment, but yeah) etc... How very rude of the TW boys, seriously. Can't you play nice & be grateful for your single going to No.1 and now let JLS bask in their limelight? But then again, it could just be the tabloids talking crap, so we dont really know, somebody has to ask them theirselves and post the response on YouTube.

well, till then I'll still be here and there, stalking JLS ;) ( I really shouldn't admit that out loud)

Random Ramblings

I'm going back home in T-minus 72 hours. I'm so excited I can't seem to wipe this smirk of my face. My exams literally ended about 6 hours ago and from then on out, I have found it very difficult to STOP SMILING. I never knew going back home would be this exciting. Anyway, the current theme song to my life is

Cause I'm coming home, coming home, tell the world I'm coming home :) And I can finally say I BALIK KAMPUNG. Though, I won't be at home for a long time, it will still be good to see my family and friends, eat the mouth watering delicacies of home and enjoy the warm weather.

Speaking of weather, it has been raining and raining here in Sydney.
I'm like dude, at least SNOW then all the chilliness I have to endure will be worth it. TEEHEE...

Speaking of TEEHEE (I like how my train of thoughts are working today -all over the place), how awesome is NICE GUYS? Haven't heard it? You should have a listen to it NOW! cause after some time it is still the NO.1 COMEDY SONG on iTunes :)

I am a proud owner of this song and cannot help but replay it over and over again. That's how awesome it is and the music video is so sweet.

Speaking of music videos, has anyone seen The Wanted's GLAD YOU CAME video? I can only express it using one word : DIFFERENT. It looked like a really cool movie trailer and I must say hats off to the director for an awesome video but my question is; IS IT REALLY TW STYLE? Are they trying to gain a larger number of followers? In the same time, will they lose some of their old ones? I hardly doubt that will happen, but the video is in my honest opinion a little too...forward, maybe? I'm sure they have screaming young fans who as I type this will be watching that video and hmm...let's just say are they old enough to be watching stuff like that?
I also have to say that even though I love Jay; he looked absolutely awkward in the video. Tom looked like he was in his element. Speaking of Tom Parker, he is taken. Yup, that's right, he has a girlfriend. I'm sure hearts were broken but suprisingly mine wasn't.

Well, this has just been random ramblings... Stay tuned for more next time only on GIRL ABROAD...teehee

Supreme Court - Hell, YEAH!

"What do you mean he does not have a duty of care?" "Yes, Your Honour but we would like to submit..." Yesterday night to be described in one word was AWESOME, wait no, it was MIND-BLOWING! Yes, I visited a courthouse for the first time in my life and just to clear it up I did not do anything illegal. I was there as a spectator for a Grand Finals Competition held by my university Law Society. It was incredible. It was held in the SUPREME COURT and actual Supreme Court Judges were presiding over the matter. It was fantastic. Yes, I'm going to be using a lot of powerful adjectives. By the way, judges in real life are just as sarcastic and funny as they are on TV. It was so much fun and the two parties( team of contestants) were very, very good. I would have broken down and cried if I were them being under fire from the moment you open your mouth. Visiting a court house was everything I imagined and more. The excitement I had before hand was not let down and the experience definitely met my expectations and maybe even surpassed them. And walking through the streets in the city with friends at night after the rain was beautiful. I quote my friend when she said that the 'rain made the ground all sparkly' which it did and the lights that lit up the streets and the tall buildings surrounding us made me feel like part of a movie. It was a fun experience and one that I'll definitely being doing again soon.
Hopefully, next year it'll be me saying "Your Honour" and "May it please the court".  Yes, I might as well get early practice if I want my dreams to come true.
So, that was my Wednesday night for me. And it was damn good one at that. I might have missed the Criminal Minds new episode (which I was dying to see) but it was all worth it.

Now, for me to go back to studying. ARGHHH...........................
If I become a princess ( because I'll be marrying Prince Harry), why do I need to study for?

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world
-Nelson Mandela-

THAT'S WHY! And I definitely want to change the world even if it is going to have to be one fraction of a person at a time

Night, peeps :) or morning or afternoon or evening wherever you're from or whenever you're reading this.

I'm trying so hard and yet I fail. I mean WHAT THE HELL? This frustrates me like crazy. I'm doing everything by the book and then when the results pop-up, it shows me a mark that I can only call by one word, DISGRACEFUL. It's not like I'm failing university, far from it, but arghhhhhh...this is so frustrating.

In other news, I survived the so-called end of the world, so I must be one of those 'bad' people. LOL. Talking about the end of  the world, I have a feeling(which I pray to God is wrong) that the world could end in 2012. Why? Have you looked around you and realised the amount of disasters that have been occuring? From the tornadoes to the Tsunamis, the list does not seem to want to end this year and we are not even through the first 6 months. And then the killing of Osama Bin Laden, could Al-Qaeda's payback attack be the end of us? We never know and all I can do is sit here eating my yoghurt and question it. From man-made disaster to natural disasters, everything seems to be turning on us including Mother Nature. Probably saw that coming what with us wasting water, making a hole in the ozone layer....
If it really is the end of the world in 2012, I wish someone would tell me and be like 100% sure. Cause then instead of studying my face off and getting disappointing results I would be travelling the world. I would want to see the 7 wonders of the world, watch a game at Old Trafford, meet the Germany Football Team ( cause I simply LOVE them) and the list goes on. I wouldn't want to waste my time studying for a degree,okay actually 2 degrees, if I'm never going to get a chance to use them. Say what?! Talk about a waste of time. I would also like to spend time with my family and friends instead of millions of miles away from them(exaggeration, but you get the idea)

And now for me to get back to studying as my first ever finals at university is just and I mean JUST around the corner. Wish me luck!
To leave this post on a happier note, I leave you with a photo of an incredible being.

haha,YES it is ASTON MERRYGOLD. what can I say, he makes me smile :)

TGIM! Yes, Thank God It's Monday cause this means I now have an extra whole week to study for my exams. YIPEE!!! ( I sound like a nerd, but desperate times call for desperate measures)
